Prima Ballerina Exclusive Blend
Like stepping into a Degas painting, the ethereal ballet dancers swirling in their colourfull tutus against the moody backdrops, Prima Ballerina takes inspiration from these to create a blend that is everything I love, simple Grey paired with bright flashes of vivid colour making a yarn that is sure to go with everything.
A stunning mix of
50% Sari Silk
This mix is strong and soft with hints of texture from the sari silk. A real joy to spin or add into felting with it's mix of fiery 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 Prima Ballerina by plying it with a plain grey Corriedale or other wool. 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

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!
