The sea has so many colours but this one is the one I'd want to swim in - rich turquoise with an inviting, deeper blue tint.  Imagine - a tropical beach, a cocktail, soft, white sand and a sea this colour, so warm you could bathe in it.  The Andaman Sea exists so in my memory of it. Bliss.

50% Bluefaced Leicester/25% kid mohair/25% silk.

This blend of Bluefaced Leicester, kid mohair and silk is superlatively soft and shiny, and the yarn will have a gentle halo when spun.  How it is spun, whether it's and airy or fluffy woollen spin or a smooth worsted spin, will define the amount of halo.  The silk adds strength, sheen and smoothness and the BFL gives loft and elasticity. This blend is a real delight to spin, and the resulting yarn is soft and warm, with lots of drape and texture.

Each braid weighs approximately 100g.
