Sometimes when you are spinning or felting, you want the opportunity to add something more--more sparkle, more texture, more fun. That's what Sparkle & Locks is all about.
I dyed up 5 colorways of the loveliest kid mohair locks I ever saw. I added 5 shades of angelina, some Sari Silk, and some mulberry silk. Consider this an opportunity to play with color and texture in a new way.
These are great to use on a blending board, drum carder, or to add directly to top or roving as you spin. The locks are also delightful to spin on their own.
You can also use these in wet felting and needle felting. The kid mohair locks will felt with a little extra effort. The sari silk and mulberry silk won't felt on their own but can be combined with wool to felt.
Altogether, you'll get just over 100 grams or 3.5 ounces of fiber. Here's the breakdown:
Eggplant Kid Mohair Locks - 14 grams or 1/2 ounce
Lilac Kid Mohair Locks - 14 grams or 1/2 ounce
Bright Blue Kid Mohair Locks - 14 grams or 1/2 ounce
Teal Kid Mohair Locks - 14 grams or 1/2 ounce
Irish Moss Kid Mohair Locks - 14 grams or 1/2 ounce
Sari Silk - 14 grams or 1/2 ounce (colors will vary)
White Mulberry Silk - 14 grams of 1/2 ounce
Angelina - 5 colorways with 1 gram each
The set will come in organza bags.
You might consider combining this with my Felting and Spinning Fiber Sets, which include merino wool, silk, and bamboo along with a little more sparkle.
