Hand dyed on Zwartbles & Silk Combed Top.
25% Tussah Silk
Sometimes softness isn't everything... This is a slightly sturdier fibre, but one with a lovely crimp, that feels like proper wool. The silk adds shine, and creates a beautiful glowing effect to the fibre, and finished yarn. It also softens the blend slightly.
Zwartbles are originally a Dutch breed, but are now found in many other countries. The fleece is much longer than Black Welsh Mountain (and much softer), or Shetland. Staple length is 10-12cm. The crimp is very open, giving this fibre a lovely lofty feel. Micron count 30-32.
Hand dyed by me in my home in the Welsh hills using acid dyes, these give strong long lasting colours.
This fibre is hand dyed in small batches. Each colour way is unique, and not dyed to a recipe.
Cool handwash only, will felt. For more detailed washing instructions take a look here.
