This blend is just gorgeous. The Merino is buttery soft, the way only Merino can be. 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.
These two colours together are just so calming. The cool minty green is shot through with a deeper sea blue, and the mauve is soft and gentle. Where they have blended more, they make a lovely brown. It is reminiscent of a calm, misty Monet-esque garden on an early morning.
