The Red Woman - Merino/Silk/Bamboo/Bluefaced Leicester/Firestar - 100g
by Cat and Sparrow UK
Stock Availability: 5
This spectacular custom blended spinning and felting fibre is a fiery mix of Merino, silk, bamboo, Bluefaced Leicester and super-sparkly firestar. It includes a variety of distinct textures that will make a highly textured and visually arresting yarn or felt.
The Merino is fine and soft, with a micron count of approximately 23. Bluefaced Leicester is soft but more robust than Merino, and has more lustre. The silk will add luxurious sheen, the bamboo shine and the rainbow Firestar sets the whole blend alight.
This fibre is part of our Game of Thrones inspired range. Melisandre, the Red Woman, is in service to The Lord of Light. She is alluring, bold and irresistible, just like this blend, although, thankfully, the roving is less inclined to set fire to people it deems expendable.
The blend is:
12.5% Firestar (nylon sparkle)
Each braid weighs 100g.
The Bluefaced Leicester in this blend is 100% British wool. We do not use fibres that come from flocks that practise mulesing.
