Each 4 ounce braid is hand-dyed individually, so they are all unique! Spin one braid on its own, or combine several for a wider range of colors. 85% Polwarth Wool + 15% Tussah Silk Combed Top
The Polwarth sheep was developed in Australia by breeding Merino rams to Lincoln/Merino ewes so the foundation stock is 75% Merino/25% Lincoln. Micron count between 22-25. Definitely next to skin soft. Drafts so smoothly and spins up fast! Noted for its elasticity and durability, although it is still considered a delicate fiber with bounce and drape. With the addition of tussah silk, this combed top is smooth and glossy with just a bit of luster.
Hand-dyed using dyes that are Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS 5.0) registered compliant and OEKO-TEX Standard 100 compliant. Color images may vary due to screen and monitor differences.
