A slightly different version of my sock fibre... because there was a bit of a mix-up in the processing stage.
No nylon in this batch, it's just wool and silk.
Superwash British Cheviot blended with Tussah Silk. This will spin up to be a hard wearing, machine washable yarn, great for socks and baby clothes, or anything that you might want to throw in the washing machine.

Cheviot fleece is crimpy, sturdy, but still with a soft hand. It makes a great sock yarn thanks to the bounce you get from the natural crimp.
Hand dyed by me in my home in the Welsh hills using acid dyes, these give strong long lasting colours. The braids listed will be as close to identical as I can make them, but hand dyeing will always produce subtle variations.
Always wash a swatch in your machine before washing a finished item, for best results use a low temperature or cold water. Dye will fade at a faster rate if you machine wash compared to gentle hand washing.
