Wensleydale/Silk - Sea Horse - 100g
by Cat and Sparrow UK
Stock Availability: 0
This lovely mix of blue, navy and lime green makes me think of seahorses dancing underwater. It's light, it's liquid and the colours blend together to make a gorgeous blue-green when spun or felted. This fibre is perfect for fractal spinning as well, as it has clear colour repeats.
The staple length of the Wensleydale/silk blend 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% Tussah silk.
Each braid weighs 100g.
