Introducing Shepherdess WINTER LUXE
They say that necessity is the Mother of invention... it was certainly the case when it came to this blend! I was attempting to re-stock my other well loved exclusive blend, Shepherdess Sparkle Sock, when my manufacturer advised me that one of the key ingredients of the blend was out of stock :O I had a mini melt down! After a cold drink I regrouped and decided it was time to dream up a new fantastic blend that fitted neatly into a gap in the market. SO after a little thought to-ing and fro-ing, Winter Luxe was born. I decided I wanted to make a Alpaca based crazy soft, and luxurious top, but, I also wanted to add an element of durability too.
I began by choosing a natural, soft Grey Baby Alpaca as the base, which sits around 24-26microns, added a generous serving of the lovely A grade Mulberry Silk, and topped off the blend with a helping of Superwashed Merino. The result was even more beautiful than I imagined!
This top will also be available handdyed by myself at a later date.
