Blue Faced Leceister-Tussah Silk Gradient

This Blue Faced Leceister wool top is blended with 20% tussah silk and hand-dyed here in Vermont. The silk lends a lovely luster to the finished yarn or felt project, making it lovely and soft next to the skin.

Each bag contains a gradient of colors as shown left, below, and weighs about 8 oz.. The photo on the right is just a closeup of part of the bag so you can see how rich the colors are because the silk takes the dye differently than the wool and it is not completely blended so you get a depth of color within each hue.

Perfect for spinning a novelty or wrapped yarn and a great choice if you are a felter and want a stash of colors to work with in your next nuno scarf or garment.

For another "Gradient" option, check out the Merino Spectrum.

For BFL by itself and in some lovely handpainted colorways instead of the gradient, check out Blue Faced Leceister Top.
