This listing is for one 4-ounce braid that is made of 70% superfine 18.5 micron merino combined with 30% mulberry silk. It's so soft and luxurious!
I dyed the fiber using my Marianne colorway, which was inspired by the very romantic character who wears her heart on her sleeve in Sense and Sensibility. I love how the colors look on this merino/silk blend. The colors include silver, lilac, pink, yellow, and white. Since the silk takes the dye more brilliantly, it's like I used double the colors.
Each top comes braided and and with a label to let you know what it's made of for future reference. I wrap it in tissue paper as well. This makes a great presentation if you are giving it as a gift to your favorite spinner or felter.
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.
