Acadia is inspired by the Porcupine Islands of Acadia National Park in Maine and features the colors of the pine forests blended into the ocean. This blended top was designed by HipStrings and custom made for our shop by a UK mill. It features 75% dyed 23 micron merino combed top, 12.5% Tussah Silk and 12.5% Natural Flax.
Although many spinners may be intimidated by spinning flax, fearing it will be difficult to draft and "crunchy" in the final yarn, the small amount of flax in many of our custom blends actually makes it easier to draft, and adds strength and drape to the resulting yarn. This fiber blend is very versatile - suitable for accessories as well as hardwearing woven textiles or comfy outerwear.
Picture is representative of the fiber and all efforts have been made to reproduce the colors accurately - color may vary according to your monitor.
This listing is for four ounces of custom blended combed top.
Care: Handwash in tepid water using a wool wash and lay flat to dry. This fiber will felt!
