Dyed in a different technique than I usually use, I was inspired by the hand-blown glass ornaments I love.
This is a Batt in a Braid: this series is a set of custom-designed blends made to be as complex as batts, but in "braid" form - hence the name :-)
It's easier to remember by number than by a whole string of ingredients ...
This blend has: 40%Polwarth 25%Mulberry Silk 15% Baby Alpaca 10% Rainbow Firestar 10% Tencel
This custom blend has the softness of polwarth and alpaca and the shine and richness of mulberry and tencel with the sparkle of rainbow tribal firestar for a unique spinning experience.
I take great care to make sure that dye is sufficiently exhausted and heat set the fibers so there is minimal to no run-off. However, due to differences in water across the globe, what runs clear for me may bleed a little for you. Please take care to hand wash your finished item in cool water and lay flat to dry. I also make every attempt possible to use a photograph that is as true as possible to the real color. Monitor settings may vary.
