This is part of our Natural Dye Series, dyed exclusively with natural dyes, such as: madder, cochineal, weld, logwood, brazilwood, osage orange, indigo, Saxon blue, Himalayan rhubarb, Quebracho yellow, and fustic. Please handle your fiber with care - as always - and wash in cool water with pH neutral soap.

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 is Batt in a Braid #44, and it contains:

65% Southdown 25% Tussah Silk 10% Kid Mohair

This custom blend was designed for spinning sock yarn, with Southdown for a bit of tooth and resistance to felting, Kid Mohair for strength, and Tussah for sheen.

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.
