Inspired by a fabulous project bag by Amy Beth of Fat Squirrel fame, this complex neutral marries deep brooding greens and blues with flashes of pink and white for a fabulous tweedy spin. A Mermaid and her Unicorn is 62.5% Merino wool, 12.5% Tussah silk, 12.5% Viscose (Bamboo) and 12.5% Flax.
Spin thin and across the top for a tweedy look, or spin from the fold for blocks of 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 left is a nest (most online orders are shipped as a nest in a plastic reclosable bag); on the right is a chain. A one ounce handspun skein is show below 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.
