Item details

111314-04 "Cranberry Tweed"

2.1oz (contains two balls of ~1oz each)

This is done in our "Delicious" base, but is a silk tweed! It's called Delicious because you just want to fill a bathtub with your spun yarn and live in it. We finally found a layered blend that is mmmmmmmm! The tweed comes from randomly distributed pieces of dyed silk cocoon.

This colorway is full of darker reds, black, and burgundy. It is also chock full of saturated red and black silks. (If you set your twist in hot water, expect red discharge for a bit. It's a saturated silk thing, not a defect in the product. It is excess dye and the color should not fade with washing.)

All of the color fibers in this blend were hand-dyed in our workshop using professional acid or Procion dyes. This product is hand-dyed, drum carded, and hand-pulled by diz.

Fiber Content:
72% Superfine Merino, 14%Bombyx Silk, 7% Tussah Silk, 7% Rayon

This NOT superwash, it will felt.


Each Qty of 1 = 2.1oz (contains two balls)

(Qty3: 6.3oz total available at original listing)

Prices may vary between similar listings because they are based on actual weight of that put-up.


Any pictures of yarn or finished items are only there for your reference. The actual listing is only for the unspun fiber. (If there are knit samples in obviously different colors, they are examples of similar tweeds, not this colorway!)
