This blend was initially born as a complement for A Chic Blend, but it soon revealed as a favourite! We’ve always loved the peculiar structure and color composition of handcarded yarns, with its unpredictable shifts, so we chose to enhance this feature by putting together quite distant fibres and colors to reach a contrasting blend. So here we have a heathery handcarded and handspun Austrian wool we drumcarded with natural black and fawn alpaca and contrasting shaded tussah silk.
