Hand dyed combed top. Available in 2 oz increments, on fiber bases shown.
Fiber pictured is Falkland. Dyed to order, and ship within 4-9 days of ordering.
How will MY fiber selection look?
Superwash (SW) bases: The colors will appear more vivid, with more variation and possible some pale to white areas.
Non-superwash single ingredient bases (Falkland, Merino, Polwarth, BFL, Corriedale Cross and Wensleydale): The colors will have softer edges and blend slightly where they meet, with less or no white, depending on the colorway. A note on Corriedale Cross combed top- this fiber is from South America, and I am not sure of the full lineage of the sheep, just that it is Corriedale with other breeds bred in. The fiber is rather coarse, similar to Romney, averaging 29.5 microns and 3.5 in/90 mm staple length.
Bamboo and Tencel blends: The wool portion will take the dye as usual, but the bamboo and tencel are not affected by acid dyes- the bamboo appears as silvery streaks and the tencel as glossy, translucent streaks.
Silk blends: These will look much like their non-silk containing counterparts, but with a bit of extra delight (depth of color and sheen) where the silk fibers sparkle with color.
VBFL (variegated natural brown and ecru) Bluefaced Leicester: This base allows for a lovely depth of color, with interesting, subtle heathering in your yarn.
Panda (SW Merino/Bamboo/Nylon 60/30/10): The brightness and whiteness of superwash Merino, with the silvery streaks of bamboo. The nylon takes the dye really well, too, similarly to the SW Merino.
