Silurian, Finnsheep/Yak/Bamboo, 4 ounces
Finnsheep is a lustrous fiber, sleek and resilient, great for hard-wearing garments but nice enough to wear next to your skin. And because this is blended with yak and bamboo, that next-to-skin quality is magnified--the yak makes the blend softer and much warmer, and the bamboo brings more sleek luster and strength to the blend. Because bamboo is a plant fiber, it won't take dye if you use acid dyes meant for protein fiber (wool, yak, silk, etc.). The undyed bamboo gives the fiber a frosted look and more muted, softer colors.
This braid is hand-dyed using acid dyes that are wash- and light-fast.
This fiber can be spun any way you like for a wonderful yarn. Please take care while hand-washing the yarn or crafted item.
I try to photograph colors as accurately as possible. Please keep in mind that color varies from monitor to monitor--what looks right on my screen may not be the same on yours!
