Regular price £20.00 Sale

A NEW base for Autumn 2020...and beyond!

 40% Superfine Alpaca - for incredible softness
 
40% Merino - gives stability, softness and a "spongier" feel than alpaca alone.

20% Silk - for strength and an ever so gentle lustre. Silk has a marvellous affinity for natural dyes - a canvas for the subtle nuances.

100g = 230m/ 252y.      Single ply construction.        

Non-Superwash

The shades are created from a very small palette of dyes, so each batch compliments the other. Select different shades for an effortless ombrè effect. For a single shade, expect variation.

Beautiful, natural variation.

Each shade has been named after the first ten lines of "Shall earth no more inspire thee" by Emily Brontë:

 

Shall earth no more inspire thee,
Thou lonely dreamer now?
Since passion may not fire thee
Shall Nature cease to bow?

Thy mind is ever moving
In regions dark to thee;
Recall its useless roving—
Come back and dwell with me.

I know my mountain breezes
Enchant and soothe thee still—
I know my sunshine pleases
Despite thy wayward will.

When day with evening blending
Sinks from the summer sky,
I’ve seen thy spirit bending
In fond idolatry.

I’ve watched thee every hour;
I know my mighty sway,
I know my magic power
To drive thy griefs away.

Few hearts to mortals given
On earth so wildly pine;
Yet none would ask a heaven
More like this earth than thine.

Then let my winds caress thee;
Thy comrade let me be—
Since nought beside can bless thee,
Return and dwell with me.
