Integrity - Shetland Rose

$25.00Price

50% Shetland

50% Rose Fiber

 

This is a very unique blend of fibers. Integrity has quickly become my favorite colorway to dye. I love the variations of color throughout. Inside you'll find rose pink, chocolate brown, golden brown, magenta purple, lilac, dusty rose, mauve, a bit of olive and moss green in the brown sections. Although each braid is dyed similarly, no two braids will look exactly the same. Some differences will occur due to the unique dye process. This braid was hand-painted using professional acid dyes to create one of a kind colors.

 

Tip: My favorite way to spin this blend is by using a short forward draft being careful to not add too much twist. The spun result is really soft to the touch, slightly cool, has a beautiful sheen, and, in my opinion, would be great for summer to early fall garments. 

 

Rose Fiber is a cellulose fiber made from the rose bushes. It is biodegradable, environmentally friendly, and is very similar to bamboo as far as how it feels and spins. It is silky and wispy. 

 

This listing is for 1 braid ~4.2 ounces.

Handwash finished items in cool water. Gentle care is needed as this fiber can easily felt (if that is not your intention).
