This combed Romney top is beautifully lustrous, with a staple length of around 5-6 inches. It takes colour with a gorgeous clarity. It has a lovely open hand (ideal for beginner spinners) and bags of character. It’s a beautifully fine wool, with a micron count of between 30 and 36. I find I can wear it next to my skin, particularly for mittens – the feel of the wool is just lovely on my hands. However, it might not be soft enough for sensitive skin. It works beautifully for sweaters, socks, and hats. It also felts very well.
Audrey is a classy mix of mint, lilac, soft stone and blue-grey. Its clear, simple beauty and calm colours made me think of Audrey Hepburn, whom I adore.
Each braid weighs approximately 100g.
