Carded fibre dizzed off in to roving.
Contains British Shetland Wool, and Tussah Silk.

Will spin up to create a yarn that gradually changes colour from red through to purple.

This fibre is not like commercial top or roving. It's fluffy, open, and really easy to draft.

You will get 4 braids, the fibre is triple carded and pulled off in a continuous strip, each braid should change colour at approximately the same rate, but because this is handmade it won't be exact. There will be some variation in the thickness of the roving.

70% Shetland Wool
30% Tussah Silk

100g (3.5oz)

The final picture (courtesy of the lovely Handa) is of the same blend of fibres spun up, and then knitted in to Stephen West's Boneyard.

For my other colour changing rovings, made in the same way, but with different base fibres take a look here-

Please note, this is one of my repeatable blends so you won't get the exact fibres shown here, but it will be the same colours, in the same quantities, made in the same way.

Frequently asked questions about hilltopcloud

Sorry, I can't supply my items on a wholesale basis
Handspun yarn should be washed carefully. All yarn has been washed before it has been listed for sale. I use hand hot water, and fragrance free detergent.
I don't recommend the rinse-free wool washes, they seem to make colours bleed.
Sorry, I can't do any custom spinning at present.
