Lichen and Moss - Polwarth/Shetland/Silk
Colour & Inspiration
This colourway was inspired by wintry walks near my mother's house in Yorkshire. No matter how bereft the trees are of leaves, and how grey the sky may be, the pale lichen and squishy moss are still happily living slowly on the rocks and dry stone walls.
50% Polwarth/25% Shetland/25% Natural tussah silk
This blend is an absolute delight to work with. It's so poofy, so soft and so textured. It will produce an exquisitely characterful yarn - soft as butter from the Polwarth, strong and warm from the Shetland, and luxurious from the silk. It has bags of elasticity, and is perfect for next to skin garments, like scarves, gloves and sweaters.
Each braid weighs 100g.
