Hand dyed on Romney, Silk & Linen Combed Top.

~500g (17.6oz)


Something a little bit different. This fibre gives beautiful stitch definition, but a really unusual texture.

The linen content might give this fibre the appearance of being scratchy, and it definitely isn't. Those linen fibres simply provide a lovely texture, but aren't prickly. The braids will feel slightly stiff to start off, but the more you handle linen, the more flexible and softer it becomes. 

Romney is a long stapled British wool of 28-29 microns. By blending it with the silk it softens the blend, and increases the shine. I can happily wear this blend around my neck as a shawl.

 

50% Romney

25% Tussah Silk

25% Linen



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.
