This colourway was designed for the third instalment of the Silk Roads rolag club. The Taklamakan Desert bisects the two main routes of the Silk Road, with traders having to follow the northern or southern route. At the edge of the desert were oasis trading towns, and still, to this day, the edge of the desert you will find an amazing forest of ancient poplars. These ancient and rare trees are now designated a World Heritage Site. 

These rolags are based on the amazing colours that the leaves of the poplar trees turn during autumn. The colours range from vivid golden, to bright orange to stunning bronze. I was stunned at how beautifully lush these trees can look in such an extremely barren habitat.

The rolags are made from a blend of beautifully soft fawn Jamieson and Smith Shetland fibre blended with 1/3 shimmering tussah silk.
