Southdown is a British fibre that measures at around 28-30 microns. This means this top won't be buttery soft like Merino, but therein lies its charm! This fibre is resistant to felting and its strength makes it an excellent choice for socks (though you don't need to be limited to that). I've had this combed top custom blended and added in some sparkly nylon to give the fibre a little sparkle and additional strength. It's a fairly low-key sparkle which won't be obvious but will add a little extra bling to your spinning and knitting process.
This fibre bend would be suitable for both new spinners and experienced spinners alike. Have a question? Please feel free to contact me.
Colorway: Give It a Try Fiber: 75/25 Southdown/Bright Nylon Weight: 4oz. Care Instructions: Anything made from this will have to be hand washed.
I've done my best to get an accurate photo of the color but monitors vary and the color may be slightly different in person. Colors may bleed slightly on first wash (though I take care to ensure no colors bleed on the final rinse) but should not affect the actual color of the yarn. Dyed with professional quality acid dyes.
I do have cats in my home and I do my best to keep them away from any yarn and fiber, but stray hairs do have a way of floating around.

Allergen information: All items come from a smoke-free home that is cat-friendly. I am a foster home for a local shelter so I almost always have several kitties in my home. I do my best to make sure that they never come in contact with any of my yarn or fiber but I cannot guarantee that a few stray hairs here and there might not hitch a ride. ;)
