Colours & Inspiration

The colours bring to mind summer in the Mediterranean, sitting under a canopy of vines, looking at the turquoise of the sea, the deep, intense blue of the sky, and the pale yellow of fresh lemons on the trees.

Fibre

100% Whiteface Woodland

This is the most wonderful wool to spin. It is from a rare breed called Whiteface Woodland, which was close to extinct 30 years ago, but thanks to the increase in interest in wool from rare breeds, it is now reviving.

The fibre itself is extremely springy, fluffy and crisp – it has a lovely hand, and spins beautifully. I love how it spins up as well – the yarn has lots and lots of elasticity, and I find it’s very easy to spin evenly. It’s just delightful.

This fibre is coarser than fibres like BFL and Merino, but I would wear it next to my skin quite comfortably (although I am quite hardy). It would be perfect for gloves or socks, as it’s quite hard wearing, or for sweaters and hats.

 

Each braid weighs approximately 100g.

    This fibre is a joy to spin! Makes up lovely squishy and chunky yarns. Perfect colour striping for fractal spinning too. Also a good fibre for felting.
