This listing is for one 4-ounce braid that is made of 70% superfine 18.5 micron merino combined with 30% mulberry silk. It's so soft and luxurious!
I dyed this in my Kristin Lavransdatter colorway. Kristin Lavransdatter is the main character in Sigrid Undset's wonderful trilogy. The novels are set in late medieval Norway. The main character, Kristin, makes a terrible mistake but goes on to do much good in spite of it.
Like the character of Kristin, the fiber is more complex than it may look at first glance. The colors include rose, peach, white, and lilac on a background of gray. The silk takes the dye more intensely, so there's some variation in shade as well.

MY GIFT TO YOU
Also, as a token of my appreciation, I would be happy to include your choice of either a sprig of fresh rosemary from my organic garden or a handmade felt ball infused with essential lavender oil with your order. Both of these smell wonderful and are natural moth deterrents. Just let me know if you would like one and which one you would prefer in the note to seller when you check out.
