I named this colorway Party Like It's 2021 in the middle of 2020, assuming the pandemic would be long over by 2021. Now that it's 2023, I decided to keep the theme but keep moving forward.
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. The colorway is much softer because of the light brown of the top.
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.
