Polwarth is gorgeous wool to work with. It is almost as soft as Merino, and has a beautiful crimp and texture. It absorbs light, which means that it isn’t very lustrous, but takes colour with a beautiful, velvety intensity. When felted or spun, it poofs up with a delightful squishiness. It has plenty of elasticity, and is perfect for next to skin wear, such as scarves, gloves or sweaters. This Polwarth is sourced from the Falkland Islands.
Each braid weighs approximately 100g
Did you ever go to the funfair on a summer evening? This is reminiscent of one hot, dusty evening that I remember – the shades of gold, pink and olive green bring back the smells of candy floss and dried grass as the sun set.
