This blend of oatmeal Bluefaced Leicester and natural Tussah silk is a delight. BFL is deliciously soft and strong with a lovely character, and the silk adds luxury and drape. The oatmeal colour of the BFL and the natural, unbleached silk add depth to any colours dyed on to them. It’s a dream to spin, and also felts beautifully. This two fibres are well blended, making this great for beginner spinners and seasoned spinners alike, and would be good for luxurious socks, cosy mitts or scarves to keep out wintry gusts.
This blend of deep crimson, violet and smoky blues was inspired by one of my favourite films – Battle Royale – a Japanese tour de force where teenage friendships, crushes and enmities play out during a frantic battle for survival. It’s dark and rich, and will spin into a gorgeous purple yarn with pops of deep red.
Each braid weighs 100g.
