Perseid Meteor Exclusive Blend
Perseid Meteor was inspired by the meteor of the same name, zooming across our milky way! The Perseids are a cloud of debris that is ejected by the comet which has a 133 year orbit. When these space clouds graze our atmosphere they can be seen as fireballs against the darkness of the night. When you use this blend I hope it makes you think of the fiery elements, whizzing through the night sky with a backdrop of shiny stars at huge speeds!
A stunning mix of
25% Sari Silk
25% Mint Fibre
50% Black Bamboo a.k.a Black Gold
This mix is silky and floppy 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, this would be beautiful on it's own or plied with a solid colour - perhaps a black wool to give it some bounce and extend your exclusive blends. 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.
