I adore the colours of the Peacock. So I thought, that with some peacock feathers, it would be easy to put together some rolags showing the stunning colours of this bird. Not so! The iridescence of the feathers means that the colours can change considerably when seen from different angles and in different types of light.
I have eventually developed this blend of colours and fibres, based on the colours in the feathers in natural sunlight. I used a base of soft, 21 micron merino in shades of bright greens and blue. Then blended it with black baby alpaca and tussah silk in shades of brown and purple. Finally a little Angelina was added, in a similar shade to give a nod to the iridescence of the original feathers.
You will receive just over 100g of rolags in the A Peacocks Tale colourway (sorry you will not get the feathers!). Most of the fibres in this blend will felt, if you do not want them to, hand wash in cool water.
Lovely colours, so bright and rich. Repeat customer, all products top notch, will be back again.

Wonderful rolags! A dream to spin. They really do remind me of peacock feathers.
