Colour & Inspiration
This colourway was inspired by a recent walk I took with a friend at Westonbirt Arboretum. There were so many colours on display, even in the winter – the soft purple of smoke, bright green of new buds, the orange of fallen leaves, and dark brown and green as a background.
Polwarth is a wonderful 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 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.
Each braid weighs approximately 100g
