Beetlebum - Wensleydale/Silk
The lustre of this beautiful blend really makes these bright jewel tones sing. This is a mix of emerald, deep blue and blue-green that is reminiscent of those brilliantly shiny beetles that you sometimes find lurking under leaves, like little gemstones.
50% Wensleydale/50% Tussah Silk
The staple length of the Wensleydale/silk blend is between 8 and 12 inches, and it spins up into a yarn that has a gorgeous characteristic sheen that makes it take dye with a lovely depth. The long fibres mean that it can cope with a lot less twist than shorter staple fibres.
The addition of silk to Wensleydale makes a delicious fibre that, when spun softly, has a fabulous drape and shine. It's just magical.
Each braid weighs 100g.
