Imagine dancing with abandon at dusk in your own secret garden. That thought inspired this OOAK colorway, Dancing in the Garden.
This top contains 50% tussah silk and 50% baby alpaca top. It's wonderfully soft, and the tussah silk adds shine and strength. The undyed alpaca is a light golden brown, which gives the dyed top a wonderfully warm color. The colorway is much softer because of the light brown of the top.
While it's possible to felt alpaca with some effort, the tussah silk won't felt, so I would recommend using this top to spin but not to felt by itself.
