by Cat and Sparrow UK
Stock Availability: 0
This fibre is a sparkly blend of fine Merino, Suri alpaca and Firestar (sparkly trilobal nylon), and is perfect for spinning and felting. Merino is known for its next-to-skin softness and suitability for fine spinning, as well as being suitable for chunkier yarns.
Suri alpaca is beautiful to work with. It has a long staple length - 3-6 inches - and is shiny and silky, adding lustre and a slight halo to the final yarn, when spun. The addition of the Alpaca also adds drape and weight to any yarn spun with this blend. The Firestar's subtle sparkle makes this perfect for evening wear, such as delicate shawls, dressy mitts or light cardigans.
The colours are inspired by the character of Danaerys Targaryen from Game of Thrones. Made up of turquoise, teal, aqua and pale yellow merino, the colours are offset by the white alpaca and silvery sparkle. The blend is:
16.5% Suri alpaca
Each braid is approximately 100g.
The Merino in this blend originates in South America, and comes from flocks that do not practise mulesing.
