A collection of hand dyed colourways. Not designed as a true Fade set, but as a set of colours that all work together, providing contrast, difference in tonal value, but still colours that will work together when used in one project.
Perfect for many of Andrea Mowry's patterns like Nightshift, or Shifty, ideal for the spinner who wants to get creative with their handspun.
Hand dyed on Rambouillet Wool Combed Top
Rambouillet produce a wonderful crimpy fibre, but with a more dis-organised crimp, matte appearance, and longer staple than their close relations, the Merino. The breed is a very old one, dating back to 1786 when the first Spanish Merino sheep were allowed to leave Spain as a gift to the French King.
