Item details

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.

Spring in the Alps is reminiscent of a spring meadow awash in Lupins. Lilac, amethyst blend with gentle blues and soft greens.

Picture is representative of the fiber and all efforts have been made to reproduce the colors accurately - color may vary according to your monitor.

    Absolutely stunning! I spin a bit fat and draft a bit slow but this roving spins up beautifully! It is most definitely going into my personal stash.
