One of our more challenging and rewarding blends to spin, this beautiful fiber asks for a light touch, with your hands placed further apart than you are normally accustomed to placing them. Once you get the feel for this fiber, you won't be able to spin enough of it!
Hand dyed on 80/20 Organic Polwarth/ Mulberry Silk wool roving (combed top) for spinning and felting in Three Waters Farm colorway, Spring Faster.
Each braid weighs 4 ounces.
The first photo is of two braids wound together; the next four photos are all of the same braid.
Easier to spin than merino, Polwarth has a bouncy feel and a matte glow which gleams with the addition of cultivated silk.
