Polwarth/silk spinning fiber: North Cascades, 4 oz
North Cascades is part of my ongoing National Parks colorway series. Named for the park closest to my home, it's a swirl of turquoise, lichen and spruce greens, weathered brown, and charcoal grey. IIt's dyed on 4 oz of Polwarth/silk, a blend of 85% Polwarth wool and 15% tussah silk. The Polwarth combines the softness of its Merino ancestors with a longer staple length contributed by its Lincoln heritage. It blooms beautifully after washing. The silk gives this blend a glimmer and drape that brightens the matte appearance of the Polwarth.
Hand wash in cold water, lay flat to dry.
