Polwarth+Silk is our decadent hand-dyed spinning fibre blend of 85% super soft Polwarth wool and 15% tussah silk for shimmer.
The Polwarth sheep is a mix of 75% Merino (for softness) and 25% Lincoln (longer staple length) and a must-spin in your repertoire! Polwarth is wonderful for felting, so be sure to treat this fibre gently if you don’t want to felt it! Fibres compact during dyeing, so pre-draft a little for better spinning. Hand wash and lay flat to dry. Hand-dyed in professional acid dyes for excellent colourfastness. All our spinning fibre is available in all our colourways.
100g (approx 3.5 oz) bundles of spinning fibre
