Mother of Pearl - Corriedale/BFL/Silk/Pearl - 100g
by Cat and Sparrow UK
Stock Availability: 0
Just like the pale, shimmering rainbow on the inside of oyster shells, this fibre is filled with subtle colour. The dove grey is highlighted with coral, sage and lilac, which combine in a beautifully complex but gentle blend.
This fibre really is a treat to spin. Bluefaced Leicester and Corriedale marry well together, combining softness and lustre with strength and elasticity. The silk adds drape, shine and a touch of luxury. The real cherry on the cake of this blend, though, is the shimmery pearl fibre. This is a cellulose fibre that has been infused with pearl particles, which give it great UV shielding properties. It's also, like the wool and silk, completely biodegradable.
The blend spins beautifully - it's soft, warm and has plenty of drape and lustre, and it's perfect for next to skin wear.
The blend is: 50% Corriedale, 25% Bluefaced Leicester, 12.5% silk, 12.5% pearl fibre.
Each braid is 100g .
