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 in rich blues and gray, 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 drapey shawls and stoles as well as hardwearing woven textiles or comfy outerwear.
