A sumptuous luxury fiber blend. Ashford of New Zealand combines beautiful colors of Merino wool sliver (roving) with shiny white silk strands for a stunning effect you're sure to fall in love with. This is our all-time favorite Silk Merino blend because of the distinct contrast within each rich colorway.
Wet or Nuno Felting this blend results in shimmering wavy strands on the surface of your project. That's because silk will not felt and the shrinking wool gathers it up during the felting process. See additional image of felted Corriedale wool with silk strands.
Spin fine, lacy and lightweight yarn for knitting or unique semi-worsted yarns for weaving.
Wool Craft figures by fashioning the fiber over a wire armature.
