HOPE BY GEORGE WATTS Hand-Dyed Baby Alpaca / Tussah Silk Top

Regular price $27.00

Quantity Available: 0

Hope was a club colorway I created based on the painting by George Watts back at the very beginning of COVID for my yarn and fiber clubs. As we find ourselves yet again--or perhaps still--in so much need of hope, I decided to make this a regular colorway. I have included the painting as one of the photos below.

I dyed it on top made of 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.
