Merino 80/Mulberry Silk 20 (Top)

80% Merino wool (22-micron) / 20% Mulberry (Cultivated) Silk

Combed top, very clean. Staple length is around 5 to 6 inches, the colour is creamy-white with lustrous streaks of silk. This is the same fibre blend that we also list as Ashford Merino/Silk Vanilla. It's soft and fluffy as a cloud and a true delight to spin. Whether you go for a thin lace spin or much thicker (even chunky novelty yarn) it won't fail to please. For years we thought the silk was Tussah silk, but indeed it turns out to be Mulberry.

This dyes up beautifully with acid dyes. Be gentle if you dye it as top, since the Merino could easily felt.
