This has been well blended to mix the different fibres thoroughly.
Hand dyed by me in my home in the Welsh hills using acid dyes, these give strong long lasting colours.
I have quite a few friends who can't work with wool, they get a bit of a raw deal when it comes to pretty dyed fibres.
This range of blended tops was put together with them in mind, but they're lovely to spin for anyone who wants something soft. Like all the rest of my fibres I created a usable, easy to spin blend, they've been test spun, by myself and several other spinners, you can see what they thought in this Ravelry thread.
This works best when spun slightly finer, and the finished yarn will develop a halo over time. You can also turn it in to a very delicate fluffy, brushed mohair yarn. There's more details in this blogpost.
