Blended Fibre: Looking for something a little funky, or looking to combine the best qualities of several different types of fibre? You're in the right place! When we say 'Blends' we mean that colours or fibre types have been carded (or blended or mixed) together to create stunning combinations. Some of the blending we do by hand (like rolags and batts), others (like tops) are done at a UK mill.

About this colour way: The forest is dangerous and dark and full of brambles to get your robes caught on, which is why I opted for Shetland (still nice and soft) instead of the lux of the BFL. Such a nice mix of deep greens and blues with a hint of olive. This reminds me of the forest at night, with just a glint of the starlight shining through the thick trees. Excellent if you're looking for a semi-solid. These blends look like one colour from a distance, but when you get up close, you start to notice all the variations. Totally magical.
Spinning tip: Shetland is a classic British fibre from up north. Bamboo is super strong and super silky, not to mention eco-friendly. Nylon gives this fibre the perfect amount of strength and shine (it's trilobal) for socks. We avoid using Superwash because of the harmful process to the environment. Oh! Because of the high Bamboo to wool ratio, I recommend wearing an apron while you spin as Bamboo fibre sticks to everything before it's spun!
Sold by the 100g and prepared in braids to keep the fibres tidy. (If you've never used a braid before, you simply pull one end and it unravels and turns back into tops ready for spinning!)
