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 and drape. The wool and silk take the colours differently, providing a beautiful marled effect with bright, lustrous contrast from the silk.
Colour & Inspiration
This is a beautiful blend of chartreuse, lilac and deep sea blue, that will put a spell on anyone who sees it. The vibrant green is softened by the lilac and sea blue. Perfect for chain plying, fractal spinning or just throwing on the wheel, it’ll capture your heart.
Each braid weighs approximately 100g.
