This blend is just gorgeous. The Merino is buttery soft, the way only Merino can be, and it’s also organically raised. Tencel is a sustainable plant fibre that is both biodegradable and compostable. It is also produced using a closed loop system, which recovers all the water and chemicals used in its production for reuse, rather than releasing them as waste into the environment. It’s a lovely fibre to work with – silky smooth and strong. I love the way that this blend takes colour – the Merino grabbing all the dye, and the Tencel adding a fantastic contrast. It spins up like a dream.
This colourway works so well on this base, because the Tencel resists the dye and sitting on top of these colours bring to mind a windswept beach on a late summer afternoon, with white horses surfing the tips of the waves and washing onto the golden beach. A mix of sea blue, violet and gold, it’s rich, fresh and beautiful.
