Hearty Heathered Fiber Braid - Emily C Gillies
- HOW IT'S MADE
- PROJECT IDEAS
These beautiful fiber braids are locally hand-dyed, and perfect for avid spinners out there!
Hearty Heathered Blend is a mix of Cheviot, Romney, and Shetland wools. The resulting fiber braid has all the properties the name suggests - a hearty, strong, and warm fiber with a heathered look to it. The fiber is also blended five times for an even spinning experience.
CONTENT: 50% Cheviot, 38% Kent Romney, 12.5% Grey Shetland.
UNIT WEIGHT: 100g
PLEASE NOTE: These braids are hand-dyed, so no two braids are exactly the same. If you'd like to see what variation of colours we have in stock, please contact us here.
This commercially combed top is processed in the UK from Cheviot, Romney, and Shetland wools. It is then hand-dyed by Emily C Gillies in her local Halifax studio using acid dyes.
You can use these fiber braids for spinning, wet felting, needle felting, or thrumming! You can also follow the gradient of colours already in the braid, or you can mix the colours up to create your own gradient/pattern. Hearty Heathered Blend is especially great for lofty spinning methods, as it has wonderful thermal properties.
