These sets are great for spinners and felters alike. They work beautifully for nuno felting my hand-dyed silk scarves, which you can find here.
The colors are chosen by me to work well together.
Each set includes the following:
- Four ounces of commercially dyed 21.5 micron merino top
- One ounce of white mulberry silk top
- One ounce of commercially dyed bamboo top
- About half a gram of sparkly firestar or angelina
The first photos show an example of the blues and purples combination. The one thing missing from the photo is the sparkle, but it will certainly be included with your order.
If you plan to use these for felting, the merino will felt beautifully all by itself. The other fibers need to be used with the merino wool or another feltable fiber in order to become attached to the silk scarves.
Each colorway set will come packaged in an organza bag, keeping it safe but allowing it to "breathe" until you're ready to use it.
Each colorway set is made to blend beautifully.
The last option is entitled "Choose your colors." If you choose that one, please be sure to include the four merino colors you would like in the note to seller when you check out. Use general terms such as red, light blue, yellow, etc., and I will do my best to choose the colorways from those available. I will also include the ounce of white mulberry silk and choose the colorway of bamboo and sparkly angelina or firestar that best matches your merino choices.
One kit is plenty to make one of the following:
- a "standard" 3.5 or 4 oz skein of yarn if you are spinning it.
- a small wet felting project such as a small scarf, hat or purse.
- one nuno felted scarf or possibly two depending on your style of felting.
