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.

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, where more than one braid is available they will have been dyed at the same time, using the same dye stock, but my dyeing technique produces braids with subtle variations, no two braids are ever identical.
This fibre will felt, cool hand wash only.
