Merino/Silk Top (50/50) for Hand Spinning - 'Russet’
A 100g gram braid of a luxurious blend of merino wool and natural Tussah silk (50% silk / 50% wool). A lovely soft and well-blended mix, which will spin up to give a well-bodied, yet lustrous yarn. This fibre would also wet felt or needle felt well.
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.
