Alpaca/Seacell/Silk - Peahen - 100g
by Cat and Sparrow UK
Stock Availability: 0
This blend of fibres is a super soft and fluffy mix of alpaca, silk and seacell, which is great for those fibre lovers who are allergic to wool. Seacell is derived from sustainably sourced seaweed, and is purported to have beneficial qualities for the skin by way of transfer of nutrients. It's soft, silky and a delight to spin. Alpaca fibre is hollow, which makes it light and extremely warm. It has no elasticity, and so unlike wool will not spring back into shape after washing, making it perfect for drapey, flowing garments such as shawls and scarves. The addition of silk adds strength and sheen to this lovely blend.
These colours - turquoise, cream and brown - were inspired by a visit to the zoo, where a glimpse of a peahen made me aware of their stunning, subtle colouring.
The blend is:
60% alpaca, 20% seacell, 20% tussah silk
Each braid weighs 100g.
