Butterscotch Exclusive Blend
hmmm delicious butterscotch! There's nothing quite like that sweet caramelly flavour which I hope I've captured in this lovely blend of lovely things. The Polwarth wool gives this blend a bit of a firmer handle whilst the sari silk and viscose keep the softness up - a real great blend for anyone who loves all things soft but wants a bit more hard wearing abilities from their yarn. Great for garments such as jumpers, socks and gloves and would make a pretty fabulous hat!
A stunning mix of
34% Sari Silk
33% Polwarth Wool
33% South American Wool and Viscose
This mix is silky and soft with hints of texture from the sari silk. A real joy to spin or add into felting with it's mix of neutral colours. If spinning, I would personally spin this straight and probably ply it on itself. I think it would make a great yarn for jumpers or clothing. You could extend your Butterscotch by plying it with a plain cream/off white wool or other coloured wool. I Think it would be great plied with Klimt's Kiss - another excusive blend. Or anything else your heart desires! These are just suggestions - I often get asked "How would you spin this?" but please do spin it however you like, there are no hard and fast rules on any fibre, but please DO send me photos, they make my day!
Make sure you buy enough for your project with our exclusive blends - they are limited quantities and once they're gone, they're gone!
Perfect for Spinning, Needle and Wet Felting, Mixed Media and adding inclusions to Weaving!
How much do I need?
This is a tricky question to answer because every project is different and spinners spin different thicknesses which changes how much meterage you get from the amount of starting weight of wool. So this is a guide, the rule of thumb is always get a little bit more than you think you'll need.
Needle Felting: 25g
Wet Felting: 50g - 100g
Spinning for fun: 100g
Spinning for socks: 100g
Spinning for scarf: 200g
Spinning for Jumper: 500g - 600g
Please note that whilst we make every effort to have a true representation of the colours, each monitor or phone screen is different and this can slightly change the colour. The best way to see them is to come in to the shop and squish them in person!
