This luxurious gradient yarn is hand dyed in a beautiful deep blue, gradually changing to darker blue and then again to black. Would look stunning worked up as a shawl. Polwarth is a soft and squishy wool that feels wonderful next to the skin, and the addition of Mulberry silk gives a beautiful shine and drape to the yarn. Lots of yardage in this skein to make a shawl or wrap.

Polwarth sheep are originally Australian and are named after Polwarth - a region near Colac in Victoria. Polwarth are a cross between the Merino and Lincoln breeds. At 23.5 microns, their fleece is super soft and the resulting yarn is full of bounce and very suitable for next to skin wear.

This listing is for one skein of Lace weight yarn as shown.

Blend contains:
70% Polwarth wool
30% Mulberry silk

657 yds
4.0 oz
26-30 wpi

This yarn was spun on my Lendrum ST wheel in a smoke free, pet friendly environment.

This yarn will felt. If that is not your intention, please be sure to handwash gently in cool water and lay flat to dry.

If you would like it in a center pull ball, please let me know during checkout.
