A Walk in the Woods - Polwarth
Polwarth combed top, hand dyed in a colourway inspired by an autumnal walk in the beautiful Westonbirt Arboretum. Autumnal rusts and olives blend with soft brown and a wisp of smokey lilac.
Polwarth is gorgeous wool to work with. It is almost as soft as Merino, and has a beautiful crimp and texture. It absorbs light, which means that it isn't very lustrous, but takes colour with a beautiful, velvety intensity. When felted or spun, it poofs up with a delightful squishiness.
It has plenty of elasticity, and is perfect for next to skin wear, such as scarves, gloves or sweaters. This hand-dyed Polwarth wool is sourced from the Falkland Islands. Wool from the Falklands is renowned for its quality, thanks to the purity of the air and soil.
Each braid weighs approximately 100g
