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 3-4 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

Cygnet Luxury Blend - Merino, Cashmere, Tussah silk - 100g

£16.00

Share:

This is one of my favourite combination of fibres. Merino and cashmere on their own feel wonderfully soft, however, their short staple lengths mean that spinning them can be a chore at times. Adding the longer stapled tussah silk to the mix makes spinning the blend a breeze. It also adds strength and shine to the resulting yarn.

Obviously the high percentage of cashmere in the blend (25%) makes the resulting yarn extremely warm, and gives it a gorgeous slight halo. The shawl in the collage photograph shows a small lace shawl made from this blend.

The greys of the merino and the fluffiness of the cashmere really capture the cute fluffballs that are the young swan cygnets - no ugly ducklings here!

You will receive 100g of roving in the Cygnet colourway. The merino and cashmere fibres in this blend will felt. If you do not want them to, hand wash in cool water.
