by Cat and Sparrow UK
Stock Availability: 1
This colourway reminds me of those gorgeous shiny green and blue beetles that you sometimes find lurking under leaves. I especially love the way these colours dye onto the Wensleydale/silk base, as the colours seem to really shimmer with intensity.
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.
