She Sells Sea Shells - Polwarth
This was inspired by a handfull of shells from an Irish beach. The colours were so gentle, but had depth and a story behind them. I haven't been able to get those shells out of my head, and this is the result. You can almost feel the sand between your toes as you spin.
100% PolwarthPolwarth is gorgeous 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 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. This Polwarth is sourced from the Falkland Islands.
Each braid weighs approximately 100g
