Inspired by the Mandarin Duck, dyed on our exclusive Classy Sock blend!
Polwarth/Corriedale/Faux Cashmere (nylon)/Bamboo (66% wool, 34% nylon & bamboo). This blend is exclusive to Classy Squid Fiber Co and has been designed to be the perfect sock spinning fiber. Polwarth for softness, Corriedale for bounce and resilience, nylon (in the form of super soft faux cashmere) for durability, and bamboo for temperature control and sleekness.
This listing is for one 4oz braid.
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 Organic Polwarth & Falkland wools are 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.
