This main fibre in this blend is Shetland, which is an absolutely beautiful fibre to work with. It's perfect for spinning and felting, and it is, for most people, next to skin soft. It is strong, highly textured and transforms from a fibre that doesn't feel especially soft to a yarn that will make you feel wrapped up, cosy and cared for. Shetland has wonderful water repellent properties as well, making it ideal for socks, hats and warm winter scarves. Shetland is easy to spin, and works supremely well spun finely, as well as adding a beautiful texture to chunkier yarns. Corriedale is next to skin soft and has a lovely open hand. It felts and spins very well, and has plenty of elasticity. Luxurious mulberry silk adds a beautiful sheen and drape to the final yarn.
