Bluefaced Leicester & Tussah silk 70/30

Bluefaced Leicester & Tussah Silk 70/30

70% Bluefaced Leicester wool combed with 30% bleached Tussah Silk. Although the silk is bleached the fibre blend retains a subtle golden shade. The crimp in the BFL is enough to pull the silk a little. This top has been though 3 blending cycles and has narrow bands of silk running through the top in addition to more distributed silk fibres. Soft and luxurious, would make excellent sock yarn spun threefold.
