A soft blue-grey variegated with rich plum, this reminds me of the bewitching shimmer on the surface of oil, when rainbows seem to dance in the light.

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. 

Each braid weighs approximately 100g.
