Inspired by rich wool tweeds, this blended top was designed by HipStrings and custom made for our shop by a UK mill. It features 50% dyed 23 micron merino combed top in olives and rich greens, 12.5% 24 micron natural brown Merino combed top, 12.5% 23 micron natural grey Merino combed top, 12.5% Natural Honey Tussah Silk and 12.5% 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 plus Tussah Silk 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.
