Merino Silk Flax

About this fibre:
50% merino / 25% tussah silk / 25% flax:  100g | 23 microns, 75-80mm staple

The soft merino blended with tussah silk and natural flax fibre procuce a uniquely textured combed top and finished yarn.  The silk gives it a lot of shine while the flax add a more rustic feel to the unspun fibre.  It's amazing to see how the flax changes once it's spun and washed.  The key to spinning this fibre is to pre-draft a lot.  This will ensure that the wool, silk and flax are blended thoughout the finished yarn.
