It takes approximately 1 hour to make up 100g of fibre, some preparations take slightly longer than others. This is why at present I have a dispatch time of approximately 5 weeks, depending upon numbers of orders.

UK shipping will be sent via Royal Mail (either first class or tracked 48) and all international orders will be sent using a tracked method. Once your item is shipped I will send you an email with your tracking information.

If you have any questions, or would like changes to a blend, or a custom order, please contact me at carol@fellviewfibres.co.uk

Blackthorne Rolags - 100g

Only 4 left in stock



Blackthorne is now flowering in the hedgerows. So, on a sunny spring lunchtime I decided to photograph the tiny white flowers that are blooming at present on the small trees - before the leaves start to unfold. This is the origin of the name - the starkness in contrast between the white petals and the dark brown bark of the tree.

These rolags are made from beautiful pedigree Border Leicester fibre for the white petals and dark brown/black zwartables fibre for the bark. Through these fibres I have added thin streaks of green, mango and yellow silks to represent the sepals, anthers and stigma of the flowers.

The Border Leicester fibre and Zwartable fibres are not as soft as merino. Some people may not find these fibres suitable for next to the skin wear (especially around the neck area), however, I would happily wear them as mittens, socks or even as an outer garment like cardigan.

The Border Leicester and Zwartables fibre will felt. If you do not wish them to, please hand wash in cool water.

You will recieve 100g of rolags in the Blackthorne colourway.

Please note : at present rolag dispatch may take 1-2 weeks
