Inspired by white birch trees, this earthy blend combines luscious Polwarth with touches of silk, yak down, noil, and naturally-colored carbonized bamboo to simulate the textures and colors of white birch bark. Blended just once to keep the color striations distinct, this blend spins up with subtle variations and striping that simulate the birch bark even in the final spun yarn.
Classic: This colorway is repeatable.
Classy Squid Fiber Co. rolags 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 wool is sourced from the Falkland Islands, UK, where the sheep are raised free of pesticides & chemicals in a pristine environment. Fibers are hand-dyed by me, Amanda, in my smoke-free, pet-free studio using professional grade acid dyes. I do my utmost to run my 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.
