Hand Dyed Bluefaced Leicester Wool (BFL) and Silk Top for Spinning or Felting - 'Aubergine'
100 grams (3.5oz) of a luxurious blend of natural brown Bluefaced Leicester wool and Tussah silk (70/30 blend). A lovely soft and slightly streaked mix, which will spin up to give a slightly textured yarn with flashes of high lustre from the silk; also suitable for wet and needle felting. The length of fibre is loosely crochet chained to create the braids that you see here.
The fibre was dyed with random mixtures and applications of colour, so the colourway is unrepeatable and unique. In some of our colourways the dye only partly penetrates the fibre in places, or splashes of colour are applied to give a 'patchwork' effect. These random colour patterns are intentional and will give a lovely variation of colour to your finished yarn or project.
While we try to photograph our fibre as accurately as possible, variations between monitors mean that your screen may not show the exact shade of the fibre in real life. If you have any queries or are looking for a particular colour match, do message me, I'll try to help.
