This blend is just gorgeous. The Merino is buttery soft, the way only Merino can be, and it’s also organically raised. Tencel is a sustainable plant fibre that is both biodegradable and compostable. It is also produced using a closed loop system, which recovers all the water and chemicals used in its production for reuse, rather than releasing them as waste into the environment. It’s a lovely fibre to work with – silky smooth and strong. I love the way that this blend takes colour – the Merino grabbing all the dye, and the Tencel adding a fantastic contrast. It spins up like a dream.
This is one of our Game of Thrones colourways, as Cat and I are both huge Game of Thrones fans. Joffrey Baratheon is the psychotic boy king of Westeros, whose lust for power is only outweighed by his lust for blood. This is a rich mix of gold, wine red and deep plum.
