This blend takes colour beautifully, and spins like a dream into a silky, lustrous, drapey yarn. The staple length of the Wensleydale/silk blend is between 8 and 12 inches, and the long fibres mean that it can cope with a lot less twist than shorter staple fibres.
The addition of silk to Wensleydale makes a delicious fibre that, when spun softly, has a fabulous drape and shine. It’s just magical.
Each braid weighs 100g.
Plum Tree is a gorgeously rich blend of plum, claret, mint and stone. The colours are cool and calming, and they really shine on this extraordinarily lustrous blend.
