This blend of 75% Merino wool and 25% Mulberry Silk is inspired by a fabric print by Gaia Marfurt featured in a Fat Squirrel Knits bag I saw at SSK 2018. Teals and turquoises are matched with pink, golden yellows and deep moody blues for a complex combination of color. This listing is for 4 ounces of custom blended combed top.
Bright and colorful merino are joined with silk to create a kaleidoscope of color - spin thin and across the top for a tweedy look, or from the fold for a fat single with blocks of in your face color.
Show in the listing photo is two different put ups of four ounces - this fiber is sold as a four ounce portion. On the top is a nest (most online orders are shipped as a nest in a plastic reclosable bag); to the bottom left is a chain. A one ounce handspun skein is show to the right of the fiber. Sample yarn is a 2 ply - how this fiber spins up will vary greatly depending on drafting method, thickness of single and other such factors.
Care: Hand wash in tepid water (we recommend Unicorn Fibre Wash), lay flat to dry. This fiber will felt!
Colors may vary according to monitors, but all effort has been taken to accurately depict the colors of the fiber.
