Blue-Faced Leicester/silk combed top: Lady Sybil
The colorway is Lady Sybil. Named for the youngest daughter of the Grantham family in the TV series "Downton Abbey," Lady Sybil is a soft but decidedly unbland combination of deep raspberry, pink, warm brown, pale apricots and golds, dusty purple, and aqua.
It's handpainted on a 75/25 blend of Blue-Faced Leicester wool and tussah silk. One of my most popular spinning fibers, this wonderful combed top combines the soft durability of Blue-Faced Leicester (BFL) with the luster and drape of silk. Each braid weighs approximately 4 oz. Hand wash in cool water, lay flat to dry.
