Cobalt- Pigments- Merino, Sari Silk, Mulberry Silk & Llama. 100g


Soft, shiny, with lots of beautiful texture from the Sari Silk. 

A colour specifically created as a synthetic replacement for the eyewateringly expensive ultramarine. Cobalt had historically been used in pottery to create an intense blue glaze, and in glass, any intense blue coloured in stained glass windows comes from cobalt. It had even been used as an artists pigment, Smalt was a cheap dull shade of blue. The pigment we call Cobalt was created in 1802 by mixing cobalt arsenate or cobalt phosphate with aluminia and roasting it at high temperatures. Artists finally had their inexpensive, vibrant blue. 

 

Colour Description- Intense royal blue with maroon streaks. 

This range of fibres will use the same fibre composition, and the collection will rotate through different colours and collections over time. Some colours will be restocked, and others may be temporary to allow space for other colours. Even if a colour is restocked the nature of the sari silk means it's unlikely that the next batch will be the same "dye lot". If consistency is going to be vital for your project please bear this in mind.
