Heather Blended Mulberry Silk.
Individual colours of mulberry silk have been combed together to produce this subtle, shimmering beautiful fibre. It will spin like a dream in to a gently variegated heather yarn, more depth of colour than a solid shade, but not so much variegation as to obscure lace patterns.
Photos of spun samples (from the end, low twist, and from the fold, high twist ) are shown in the additional photographs.

Mulberry Silk comes from the Bombyx types of moth. This type of silk has more lustre, and a longer staple length than Tussah Silk.
Commercially dyed in a stunning palette of colours to Okeo-Tex 100 standard. This environmental certification verifies the methods used are environmentally friendly, and the dyed used are safe for human health.
Whether you're a spinner, felter, or mixed media artist you'll love working with this fibre.
These fibres have been professionally dyed to commercial standards, you may wish to wash a small amount in your chosen detergent to check for any dye bleeding before using your yarn in combination with other colours. I strongly recommend using a pH neutral detergent, and the avoidance of no-rinse wool washes.
