Quantity Available:     1 only

This is a hand painted roving, or more properly combed wool top, for hand spinning and felting.

This braid is in shades of brown, green and gold.

This wool is a blend of 70% gray Merino with 30% tussah silk, for additional shine, softness and luxury. Merino is the softest of all wools, and this natural gray 23 micron variety lives up to its reputation. The silk adds luster and more softness for a striking blend that takes colors well.

Our braids are dyed with fairly even distribution of colors. Photos are of each side of the coil, so you can see as much of the color as possible. These are the same braids from which I spin my yarns, so I dye them for that.

We name our braids based on the inspirations we get from the colors, drawing on nature, literature, mythology, geography, and our lives and travels. Braids with the same name numbered sequentially are a matched set that were dyed together, although they may have different weights and look slightly different in the photos. Each colorway is unique; we may sometimes repeat names, when a new colorway strikes us the same way as an older one.

Fiber: 70% Gray Merino wool / 30% tussah Silk.
