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

My inspiration for this blend is some photographs that I saw of ice storms, where ice builds up on a massive scale on buildings, trees and cables. See my pinterest board for my inspiration photographs.

The ice formed is normally opaque, with a sparkle.

So I took one of my favourite fibres, Polwarth - which is soooo soft, but has a longer staple length than merino. This means that I find it a little easier to spin. I blended it on my drum carder with beautiful white tussah silk, approximately 50:50 ratio, and then for the final bit of sparkle, I blended in some soft Trilobal sparkle. Not enough to overpower the blend, but sufficient to make the blend gleam in the sunlight.

I took the blended fibre batts and made them into rolags/punis on my blending board. I am rather pleased with the result.... some inexplicably have found their way into my stash! ;-)

You will receive just over 100g of rolags in the Frost Fingers colourway. The Polwarth fibres in this blend will felt. If you do not want it to, hand wash in cool water.
