Minium- Pigments- Merino, Sari Silk, Mulberry Silk & Llama. 100g

 Soft, shiny, with lots of beautiful texture from the Sari Silk. 

If you've ever looked at a Medieval manuscript then you can't have failed to notice the eye catching bright red-orange shade. That colour comes from Minium, a manufactured pigment made from Lead. The metal is dissolved in vinegar, and the resulting compound is lead white, if you then heat that white pigment it transforms in colour, turning red-orange. It became less popular as Vermillion became more available, in part because this colour doesn't play well with other pigments, and has a tendency to turn black when left exposed to air. 

Colour Description- Vibrant Orange with streaks of brown and multicolour texture

This range of fibres will use the same fibre composition, and the collection will rotate through different colours and collections over time. Some colours will be restocked, and others may be temporary to allow space for other colours. Even if a colour is restocked the nature of the sari silk means it's unlikely that the next batch will be the same "dye lot". If consistency is going to be vital for your project please bear this in mind.
