Beetlebum – Shetland/Silk

(1 customer review)


60% Shetland wool/40% Tussah Silk

Beetlebum is a beautiful blend of British Shetland wool and unbleached Tussah silk dyed in jewel-toned greens and blues. The silk adds beautiful highlights.


60% Shetland wool/40% Tussah Silk

Shetland wool is very special indeed.  It has a crisp, silk feel, and is extremely warm and strong and elastic, and has excellent water repelling qualities, making it perfect for hats, gloves, sweaters, socks – almost anything, in fact.   It’s the perfect all rounder.  In this fibre it is blended with Tussah silk, which adds to its natural sheen, and lends a little luxury.

Each braid weighs approximately 100g.

Colour and Inspiration

The bright greens and blues of this colourway are beautifully muted by the natural grey shetland, while the silk really shows up the jewel tones, reminiscent of gorgeous green and blue shimmering beetles that flash their colours unexpectedly from the undergrowth.
