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 my Textured Blend- Wool, Sari Silk & Stellina.
A gorgeous, fluffy, textured blend!
Don't try to spin this smoothly, embrace the joy of sari silk, and add some bling.
It's not a super soft fibre, but it will have a lovely bounce from the Manx Loaghtan. This is an ancient breed from the Isle of Man, micron count 29-31, with a fantastic crimp.
28% Manx Loaghtan
28% Blue Face Leicester (BFL)
28% Sari Silk
~60g (2.1oz) of each colour way.
This fibre is hand dyed in small batches. Each colour way is unique, and not dyed to a recipe.
These fibres have been dyed to exhaust using acid dyes, and then rinsed using hot water and detergent. I recommend you hand wash your spun yarn in warm water, using a mild pH neutral detergent. The no-rinse wool washes seems to be the most prone to causing bleeding so are best avoided.
Cool handwash only, will felt. For more detailed washing instructions take a look here.
