Stock Availability: 2
This fibre is divine. It's a mix of Corriedale and mulberry silk, from John Arbon. The Corriedale is some of the softest I've come across, and it drafts beautifully. As for the silk, what more is there to say? I'm a sucker for silk, and would put it in my breakfast if I could digest the stuff. This is top notch stuff.
This colourway is rich, dark and satisfying. It's a deep navy dyed onto a brown Corriedale and A-grade Mulberry silk base. The brown Corriedale take the colour with a fantastic depth and variation, from deep blues, to grey blues and browns, and the white silk takes it brightly, creating a stunning contrast. It gives the most wonderful effect to the finished product, whether it's spun or felted, both of which it does beautifully.
The blend is 70% Corriedale, 30% Mulberry silk.
Each braid weighs 100g.
