by Cat and Sparrow UK
Stock Availability: 10
Lovely! The colours are even more beautiful in real life, deeper and richer, and the fibre is so soft. It will be a treat to spin this.
This fibre is a lovely warm blend of toffee and gold New Zealand Corriedale, cinnamon Shetland, terracotta Merino, dark brown alpaca and deep gold silk. Corriedale is beautifully soft and spins very evenly, making it a great fibre for beginner spinners. The Shetland adds a delicious texture, and will add strength and warmth to the final yarn. Alpaca is a hollow fibre, so is extremely light and warm, and adds a fluffiness to the final yarn. The silk is the final touch of luxury, with its exquisite sheen and smoothness.
This is perfect for felting or spinning, and will work extremely well for mitts, gloves and hats. For larger projects it would work well for warm sweaters or cardigans because it has plenty of elasticity and next to skin softness.
This is another one of our Game of Thrones inspired range. Ellaria Sand is the lover of Oberyn Martell, Prince of Dorne - the oasis city. She is fiery and passionate, and is mother to the Sand Snakes, four warrior women as brave, independent and deadly as Ellaria herself.
