Zen Garden - Alpaca/Seacell/Silk
There is noise and bustle all around us - real and virtual - and we rarely get time to sit and just be. The soft pinks and plums and pale jade of this colourway create a calm, floral space for the eyes to rest on. Let it take you to that place of quiet contemplation, where your creativity can blossom.
60% alpaca/20% seacell/20% tussah silk.
This blend of fibres is a super soft and fluffy mix of alpaca, silk and seacell, which is great for those fibre lovers who are allergic to wool.
Seacell is derived from sustainably sourced seaweed, and is purported to have beneficial qualities for the skin by way of transfer of nutrients. It's soft, silky and a delight to spin.
Alpaca fibre is hollow, which makes it light and extremely warm. It has no elasticity, and so unlike wool will not spring back into shape after washing, making it perfect for drapey, flowing garments such as shawls and scarves. The addition of silk adds strength and sheen to this lovely blend.
