Briar is a super interesting, fluffy and lightly textured blend of shetland, mohair, silk, and hemp. The three animal fibers take up dye colors differently, leading to really interesting mottled effects when dyed. The hemp resists the dye and provides a little bit of toothy texture to add interest to your spins- without being scratchy.

Classy Squid Fiber Co. fibers are designed to provide a wonderful spinning experience, but would also be gorgeous if used for felted designs or as accents in weaving. My Polwarth & Falkland wools are sourced from the Falkland Islands, UK, where the sheep are raised free of pesticides & chemicals in a pristine environment. All raw wools were scoured using Unicorn Power Scour. Fibers are hand-dyed by Amanda in a smoke-free, pet-free studio using professional grade acid dyes. We do our utmost to run our dyeing studio in an environmentally-friendly manner.

 

To care for your creations and avoid felting, hand-wash your items in warm (not hot) water with a mild wool wash such as Eucalan or Soak, without agitation, and allow to air-dry.

All fibers are rinsed after dyeing until the water runs clear, but variations in water content may cause some fibers to tint your washwater when setting your handspun yarns. This is harmless and should not indicate any fading of the color in your item.
