Hand Dyed Mulberry Silk Top
Specially made for Hilltop Cloud as a thicker strip than is normal for silk top. This allows me to hand dye the fibre in the way I used to dye silk bricks.
A Grade Mulberry Silk is the highest grade of silk, super smooth and shiny. I ca no longer source bricks of a quality I am happy with, so will now be stocking silk top. This top is of the quality I used to be able to get in brick form 4 years ago.
This silk has been hand dyed in my home in the Welsh hills using acid dyes, these give strong long lasting colours.
May contain some paler patches, which will lead to a lovely subtle variegation when spun.
This fibre is hand dyed in small batches, where more than one is available they will have been dyed at the same time, using the same dye stock, but my dyeing technique produces braids with subtle variations, no two braids are ever identical.
