Orchid – Alpaca/Seacell/Silk

£13.50

Colour & Inspiration

This was inspired by beautiful deep purple Dendrobium orchids. Their colour is so velvety and rich, splashed with delicate white – it’s sumptuous and regal.

The Fibre

60% alpaca/20% seacell/20% tussah silk.

This blend of fibres is a super soft and fluffy mix of alpaca, silk and seacell, which is great for those fibre lovers who are allergic to wool.

Seacell is derived from sustainably sourced seaweed, and is purported to have beneficial qualities for the skin by way of transfer of nutrients. It’s soft, silky and a delight to spin.

Alpaca fibre is hollow, which makes it light and extremely warm.  It has no elasticity, and so unlike wool will not spring back into shape after washing, making it perfect for drapey, flowing garments such as shawls and scarves.  The addition of silk adds strength and sheen to this lovely blend.

Each braid weighs 100g.
