Glorious Nemesis rolags - 100g

Only 4 left in stock


These rolags were the final instalment for the Biodiversity rolag club in 2022. I wanted to choose a normally overlooked species for this colourway. I began to look at insects for colour inspirations, and found this moth, Polytela gloriosae - otherwise known as the Indian Lily Moth. A beautiful moth.... but still a moth - hence the name Glorious Nemesis - Nemesis due to the fact that I seem to spend my life with lavendar and cedar oil, defending my wool against a rather different species of moth.

These rolags are made from 21 micron merino in shades of pink, purple and black, with golden mulberry silk running through.

The merino in this blend will felt.
