Wensleydale/Silk - Poppies - 100g

by Cat and Sparrow UK

Code: WSP

Stock Availability: 0

This colourway was inspired by the gorgeous poppies that are growing in gardens along my road at the moment. On looking the other day, I realised the centre of the poppy is not black as it first appears, but a deep, deep plum. I couldn't resist trying to recreate it, and this is the result. I love it.

It is dyed onto one of my favourite bases - wenleydale/silk. The staple length is between 8 and 12 inches, and it spins up into a yarn that has a gorgeous characteristic sheen. The long fibres mean that it can cope with a lot less twist than shorter staple fibres.

The addition of silk to Wensleydale makes a delicious fibre that, when spun softly, has a fabulous drape and shine. It's just magical. I love it.

The blend is:

50% Wensleydale
50% Tussah silk.

Each braid weighs 100g.
