A delicate blend of naturally white and grey merino and bright and fluffy sari silk, for a tweedy textured yarn with little pops of colour. Sister sets are colourways across two different fibre bases - you will receive 50g of each base.
84% white/grey merino 23 mic
16% sari silk
One of the better known sheep breeds, Merino wool can range from ultrafine (at 11.5 microns) to “strong” (25-26 microns), with the coarser end of the range still coming up softer and finer than many other wools out there. The wool is beautifully dense, evenly crimped, and takes on colour well. Perhaps a little slippery for beginners, but a really great wool for spinning and felting. Sari silk is a recycled fibre - old or worn out saris are shredded, and carded and blended into sari silk fibres, to add softness and colour to your projects.
This listing is for 100g (2 x 50g)
This colourway is: repeatable :)
This blended roving has been designed by me, and blended at a commercial wool mill. There may be a little residual factory smell, but don't worry! Once you spin and wash your yarn, all the fusty smell will be gone :)
I would recommend that you gently wash your handspun yarn and the items you've crafted from it by hand, with a special wool soak, hand wash detergent, or gentle baby shampoo to avoid felting. However, if felting floats your boat, really give it some welly!
