One lump or two…?
These eight shades are my interpretation of classic tea flavours. They are designed to work together as a colour palette of two or more shades or even the whole range as a gradient or a colour changing yarn or for knitted colour work in whichever order pleases your taste(bud)s the most…
How do you take yours… Milk or black…?
The combination of wools and luxury fibres gives a pleasing hand for a wide range of spinning. Both the merino and BFL wools are comfortable worn next to the skin and together give bouncy all round knitting yarns or for weaving with. The alpaca gives a pleasing halo and the silk content adds a depth to the colour and that magical sheen that only silk can.
Spun chunky and navajo-plied or true three ply gives a round, beautifully chubby yarn with a soft waxy hand for wonderful garment yarns. Spun fine, the luxury fibres sing out and give a wool blend yarn suitable for delicate items or for lace work.
Can I interest you in another cake…?
Currently available in a taster sample pack of approximately 20g of each of the eight shades (totally 160g fibre) over at BarberBlackSheep on Etsy
The full size 100g packs of individual colours will be available in a couple of weeks.
