The Fibre Garden : Merino/Silk
Showing all 16 results
These are very popular blends, generally 80% Merino wool and 20% Tussah silk. Some of the colourways are delightfully streaky and lots of fun to spin, particularly great for learning to “spin from the fold”. Because the wool proportion is high they are also awesome for felting, the silk sort of just goes along for the ride but lends some interesting sheen to your project.
Several of our suppliers produce these blends, so we pick and choose the ones that we like the best including some streaky and some more tone-on-tone or solid. We’re now able to offer these in various packed sizes, big or small.
Pictured here are the various streaky Ashford Merino/Silk blends, though we don’t carry all the ones in the photo.
