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.
(Designed to be perfect for socks!)
About this colour way: Part of our 'Hulk' colour way, this beautiful purple and brown blend represents the little trousers that our favourite big green friend wears. Depicted in comics and films as Purple (or sometimes brown), we've blended several shades of both to make this lovely combo. The shocks of white nylon gives it shine (literally!) and strength. The fibre colour way is inspired by the original mini-skein set we made.
Spinning tip: Shetland is a classic British fibre from up north. BFL is the softest of all British breeds. 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.
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!)
