CORAL BRIGHTS. British & Bamboo Blended Fibre Tops/Braid 100g
Sold by the 100g and prepared in braids to keep the fibres tidy. (If you’ve never used a braid before, you simply pull one end and it unravels and turns back into tops ready for spinning!)
Blended Fibre: Looking for something a little funky, or looking to combine the best qualities of several different types of fibre? You're in the right place! When we say 'Blends' we mean that colours or fibre types have been carded (or blended or mixed) together to create stunning combinations. Some of the blending we do by hand (like rolags and batts), others (like tops) are done at a UK mill.
16.7% Shetland 50% BFL 33.3% Bamboo
About this colour way: This is a really fun combination of scarlet red, pumpkin orange, citrus orange and hot pink. All those colours mixed with a good helping of natural white. Coral is a colour I’ve been seeing around a lot and I wanted to make my own version of it. I love the two tones of orange together and the combination of the silky bamboo with the fluffy BFL. Blended to make a smooth colour, with bigger pops of the individual shades which helps create a more dynamic fibre than a flat dyed coral. Excellent if you’re looking for something a little more colourful than a semi-solid. These blends look like one colour from a distance, but when you get up close, you start to notice all the variations. Totally magical.
Spinning tip: Shetland is a classic British fibre from up north. BFL is the softest of all British breeds. Bamboo is super strong and super silky, not to mention eco-friendly. We avoid using Superwash because of the harmful process to the environment. Suitable for felting too, just remember that Bamboo takes needle felting much better than wet felting.
