by Cat and Sparrow UK
Stock Availability: 13
This blend of fibres contains wools of superlative texture, lustre and bounce. Gotland is a longwool that has a lovely lustre, and is warm. It adds a lovely sheen to the finished yarn. Shetland is next to skin soft while still being very textured. It also has fantastic water repelling properties. Bluefaced Leicester and Corriedale are easy to spin and very versatile - they can be used for almost any purpose because they are soft and hardwearing.
This fibre is perfect for warm winter sweaters or socks. Yarn spun from this blend will have plenty of elasticity and warmth, and the fibre will wear well without much, if any, pilling.
The colours are a blend of natural grey, midnight and royal blue, and are inspired by Princess Buttercup's moonlight boat ride with Vissini, Fezzick and Inigo Montoya, as they dash for the Cliffs of Insanity, hotly pursued by The Dread Pirate Roberts.
