What's blue and bigger on the inside, and once upon a time exploded, causing a rift in space and time? If you're a Doctor Who fan, these rolags need no explanation. If not, well, you're missing out, but you could think of this as a Vincent Van Gogh "Starry Night" inspired colorway instead :-)
Mulberry silk noil
This is a listing for 2 ounces of a Classic blend. The blend is approximately 75% wool and 25% silk, nylon, and angelina. Because these rolags require so many different colors to be blended together, they are slightly more expensive than my other rolag sets.
**This colorway is made-to-order, please allow 1-2 weeks for dyeing and carding just for you!**
What is a rolag? It is a little fluffy tube of fiber, which I hand-card on my blending board. Rolags are traditionally used for woolen spinning, as the tubular shape allows for a lot of air to be trapped while drafting. To spin, simply pick an end, fluff out the and begin drafting. You can spin these with a worsted (short) or woolen (long) draw. Pre-drafting is optional, but I recommend it if you plan to spin worsted or for core-spinning, for the smoothest spin.
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 Organic 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, without agitation, and allow to air-dry.
