Stock Availability: 2
This colourway is just delicious. It's a deep minty blue-green dyed onto a mix of brown Corriedale and A-grade Mulberry silk. The brown Corriedale take the colour very subtly, and the white silk takes it strongly, creating a stunning contrast. It gives the most wonderful effect to the finished product, whether it's spun or felted, both of which it does beautifully.
The fibre itself is divine - the Corriedale, from John Arbon, is some of the softest I've come across, and it drafts beautifully. As for the silk, what more is there to say? I'm a sucker for silk, and would put it in my breakfast if I could digest the stuff. This is top notch stuff.
The blend is 70% Corriedale, 30% Mulberry silk.
Each braid weighs 100g.
