Flowering Meadow was dyed as a gradient starting with a beautiful golden yellow and ending with a beautiful shade of dark blue. I think this would make a wonderful fractal yarn.
I dyed this top on some lovely 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.
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.
