A silky delight to spin, our BFL/Silk blend is comprised of 70% oatmeal Blue-faced Leicester wool and 30% Tussah silk. The oatmeal-hued base makes for a beautiful, heathered tone to our colorways, and for felting projects the BFL in this blend felts nicely, drawing in the silk for a lustrous surface sheen.
Please note: Due to the color of the fiber base (oatmeal brown) we do not recommend the following colors be dyed on this base as it does not show up well: Wisteria, Robin's Nest, Berry Bramble, Meadow, and Cherry Blossom.
Our wool fibers are kettle dyed by hand with professional textile dyes to create brilliant, long-lasting colors. We handle the wool top with care to ensure it is lofty and easily drafted. It's easier and more enjoyable to work with quality fiber, and consequently, it yields a better result! Due to the nature of hand dyeing, colors may differ slightly from braid to braid. If working from multiple braids, mix them together as you spin for the most blended look.
