Ellaria - Alpaca/Corriedale/Shetland/Silk
33% Corriedale, 17% Shetland, 17% Alpaca, 17% A-grade mulberry silk, 16% Merino
This is a supremely delicious blend of Corriedale, Shetland, alpaca, silk and Merino in toffee, gold, cinnamon, terracotta and dark brown. This is perfect for felting or spinning, and will work extremely well for mitts, gloves and hats.
Each braid weighs approximately 100g.
Corriedale is beautifully soft and spins very evenly, making it a great fibre for beginner spinners. The Shetland adds a delicious texture, and will add strength and warmth to the final yarn. Alpaca is a hollow fibre, so is extremely light and warm, and adds a fluffiness to the final yarn. The silk is the final touch of luxury, with its exquisite sheen and smoothness.
This is perfect for felting or spinning, and will work extremely well for mitts, gloves and hats. For larger projects it would work well for warm sweaters or cardigans because it has plenty of elasticity and next to skin softness.
