Vesper – Wensleydale/Silk

£13.00

50% Wensleydale/50% Tussah Silk

The staple length of Wensleydale is very long – between 8 and 12 inches, and it’s quite silky. The addition of silk adds a beautiful softness and richness to its already beautiful lustre.  It spins up into a yarn that has a gorgeous characteristic sheen that makes it take dye with a lovely depth. The long fibres mean that it can cope with a lot less twist than shorter staple fibres.

Colour & Inspiration

This colourway reminds me of a soft summer evening – the sky moving from pale blue to mauve, with hints of gold in the clouds, and grey shadows lengthening as the sun sets. It’s soft, calming and delicious.

Each braid weighs 100g.
