This listing is for one 4-ounce braid that is made of 84% merino wool and 16% sparkly stellina. Unlike most of my top, this is not hand-dyed, but it is lovely and soft and incredibly sparkly. It's a little hard to see how sparkly it is through the photos, but take a look at the edge photo to see it best. Trust me when I say it is really sparkly. The merino is right about 23 microns, so it's still definitely next-to-the-skin soft, but not quite as incredibly soft as some merino.
The colors include lilac, peachy-pink, spring green, light blue, and white. The preparation is very smooth and easy to draft and spin. It would also be excellent for felting.

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.
