Hand-Dyed Merino Bombyx

This luxurious 50% bombyx silk and 50% merino wool top is available in glorious hand-dyed colors. This blend is as beautiful worked into fine felted fabric or "nuno" felting projects as it is hand spun and woven or knitted into a lovely shawl!

Lustrous and soft, a 2 oz hank goes a long way when used as an accent in felt - and even used by itself, 1 hank will cover two 54" widths of 36" wide silk gauze.

And hand spun as a fine fingering/sport weight, you can knit a lovely shawl with just 2 hanks.

And if you want to make each hand dyed hank go a bit further either in your felt or spinning, then, supplement a hank of this luxury fiber with some merino top.

Price: $23.99 per 2 oz hank
