Extra Fine Merino and Stellina
NEW for 2018! Soft and sumptuous Extra Fine Merino top with a rebellious streak. Available in 125g braids, giving you plenty to work with.
We've always liked to break the rules, and to create our daring colourways we lightly blended pastels and dark tones with bold accent colours, then added a touch of sparkling Stellina.
Stellina is a fine Nylon fibre that’s soft against the skin. Most often it has a metallic silver tone, but we’ve used a range of unusual and iridescent shades of Stellina, carefully chosen to complement the vivid Merino, giving Rebel Blend an extra dimension.
These are soft, fine Merino fibres with a relatively short staple, that can handle a lot of twist. Rebel Blend is perfect for plied yarns of any weight. It can be drafted worsted for a smooth yarn, or woollen to add more loft. Singles yarns may benefit from a fulling to give them a little extra resilience.
The gentle blending process gives you freedom to keep colours separated, combination draft for a marled yarn, or even blend them further for a tweedy, flecked yarn.
Being made from non-superwash wool, this fibre is also suitable for felting.
