Enchanted Forest was inspired by all the magical forests in literature. I especially had The Lord of the Rings in mind when I created the colorway. I dyed this top as a repeating colorway with gold, copper, green, purple, and a beautiful gray-blue.
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. One nice thing about this top is it may well work for someone with sensitivities to wool since there is no sheep wool in it.
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.
If you would like a spindle to go with your hand-dyed top, you can find them in the Tools and Equipment section of my shop.
