Heather Blended Mulberry Silk.

Individual colours of mulberry silk have been combed together to produce this subtle, shimmering beautiful fibre. It will spin like a dream in to a gently variegated heather yarn, more depth of colour than a solid shade, but not so much variegation as to obscure lace patterns.  Photos of spun samples (from the fold, high twist, and from the end, low twist) are shown in the additional photographs

Mulberry Silk comes from the Bombyx types of  moth. This type of silk has more lustre, and a longer staple length than Tussah Silk. 

Commercially dyed in a stunning palette of colours to Okeo-Tex 100 standard. This environmental certification verifies the methods used are environmentally friendly, and the dyed used are safe for human health. 

Colour Description

Blended blues, greens, and turquoises

 

Whether you're a spinner, felter, or mixed media artist you'll love working with this fibre. 

 

These super saturated blues can lead to some dye transfer as you spin. This is not unusual with blue and turquoise dyes. These fibres have been professionally dyed to commercial standards, you may wish to wash a small amount in your chosen detergent to check for any dye bleeding before using your yarn in combination with other colours. I strongly recommend using a pH neutral detergent, and the avoidance of no-rinse wool washes. 

Established in 2011, Hilltop Cloud is run, and owned by Katie Weston. I live in rural mid-Wales and spend my days surrounded by colour, and beautiful fibre. I think I have the best job in the world and am really happy to be able to share what I create.
