98g(3.4oz)

Blend name: Alpaca/silk
Composition: 50% superfine baby alpaca and 50% tussah silk
Colorway: Black Jewels
Color: Black Rainbow

Colors: black alpaca combined with very bright and intense tussah silk dyed in rainbow colors.

This is deliciously soft and silky alpaca/tussah silk top, very easy to spin. The tussah silk in this top simply glowing with colors. Any peacock would die of envy. Should be great for spinning lace weight yarns for shawls or any other garments. You can see what kind of yarn you can make with such kind of alpaca/silk tops here:

or on last photo - courtesy of my wonderful client Kali Mayson (the yarn and the mittens had been made from "Black Rainbow" top). And believe me, they look even better in a real life :)

I am trying to make my photo as close to the original as possible, but please remember that monitors vary and real color may differ from the photo.

Care: any item made from this top should be hand washed in cool water, do not leave it in detergent for too long (few minutes are enough), use only special detergents designed for wool products.

Dyes: I use professional acid dyes and set them well, but as I rinse tops after dyeing with only water, so some loosely attached dye could be still there and you should expect some bleeding at first couple of washes, especially from very intence colors.

Mine is non-smoking and pet-free house.
