Organic Polwarth combed top: Black Sand Beach, 4 oz
Inspired by a visit to Hawaii, Black Sand Beach is a vivid combination of brilliant oranges and yellows, deep cherry, pale orchid, soft grey, and sooty black. It's handpainted on organic Polwarth combed top.
This organic top is sourced from Polwarth sheep on two family farms in the Falkland Islands, which are not mulesed or dipped in pesticides, and are grazed on sustainably managed pastures. This top is amazingly soft, coming in at a mere 22 microns (the smaller the micron number, the thinner the fiber and the softer it is). With a staple length of 4"-6" and that wonderful trademark Polwarth poofiness, this fiber is a pleasure to spin and knit.
Each braid is 4 oz. Hand wash in cold water, lay flat to dry.
