Hand dyed BFL & Silk Combed Top.
Blue Faced Leicester fleece from Devon based flocks, specially sorted and graded in the South Molton wool depot, then re-graded by Wool Tops to remove a further 20% of kemp and inferior quality fibres. The remaining fibre was scoured, then combed at John Arbons mill in Devon to make a 26 micron top that is magical stuff.
20% Mulberry Silk
Hand dyed by me in my home in the Welsh hills using acid dyes, these give strong, long lasting colours.
~ 100g (3.5oz)
This fibre is hand dyed in small batches, where more than one braid 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, where multiple braids are available they are shown in the additional photographs.
