Beautiful, soft and lustrous soy fibre, the vegetable alternative to silk!

I hand-dyed it with acid dyes, in a technique known (here in the UK) as space-dyeing, colours poured across the tops in stripes and steamed to set.

This colourway I called Plum Pudding, shades of gold, orange, rose pink, pinkish beige and touches of chocolate brown. The colour sequence repeats about every yard, so you can vary the colour effects as you spin. Spin just as it comes for long sections of colour, or split the top down and pre-draft for shorter colour bursts. Then you have the further option of plying it back on itself to mingle the colours, or navajo ply to keep them distinct. It would also look beautiful spun as a single and plied with a wool thread in a toning colour.

I have included several pictures, to try and give a good idea of the colour, but I can't guarantee that it will look exactly the same on your screen as it does on mine!

So this listing is for a bag of Plum Pudding dyed soybean tops weighing approx 100g.

Any questions, please get in touch - I'm always happy to answer!

Thanks for looking!
