Polwarth Silk Top

This lovely handpainted top is put up in 100 gm hanks, so spun to a worsted weight gauge, you'd have enough for a hat or mittens from just 1!

And if you choose to felt it, i'd use 2 for a pair of slippers, but I tend to make my slippers thinner. And how much you might like depends on how thick or thin you want your project to be! And of course you could use a solid merino as the base to save some money and then just use one of these handpainted gems on the last surface layer to achieve the handpainted effect!

This blend in felting offers nice structure with a soft hand and bit of lustre from the silk.

And in yarn, depending of course on the thickness and twist angle you spin it to, a lovely soft yarn suitable for sweaters, hats and mittens, but soft enough for a cowl as well!

Be sure to click on the photos to enlarge them so you can really appreciate the colors!

We also have a handpainted Corriedale top if you're looking for something basic and not quite as special as this Polwarth Silk is!

Price: $28.00 per 100 gm hank
