Irridescence - Polwarth
This is a deep, blue grey, layered with rich plum. Although there is little lustre on this particular fibre, the colours are reminiscent of those on the top of an oil slick - the deep purples and blues have a fabulous depth and velvety softness.
Polwarth is a wonderful wool to work with. It is almost as soft as Merino, and has a beautiful crimp and texture. It absorbs light, which means that it isn't very lustrous, but takes takes colour with a beautiful, velvety intensity. When felted or spun, it poofs up with a delightful squishiness. It has plenty of elasticity, and is perfect for next to skin wear, such as scarves, gloves or sweaters.
Each braid weighs approximately 100g
