Our own blend of Polwarth Wool and Mulberry Silk!

AUSSIE SILK is an Exclusive FibreHut blend of beautiful soft natural white Australian Polwarth wool and bright white shiny grade 'A' Mulberry Silk!

The Mulberry silk gives strength yet the fibre remains wonderfully next to skin soft and super luxurious. It is an absolute delight to spin and we think the resulting yarn rivals any commercial silk blend.

Aussie Silk is the whitest and brightest of our fusion blends and both the Polwarth and the Silk will take the dye well although at differing intensities so you can create lovely tonal effects. When nuno felting the silk will wriggle around to create interest. Aussie silk is one of our most luxurious and favourite fusions and definitely one to try!

  • 100g - mittens, socks, hat
  • 300g - cushion cover, shawl, long scarf

Always buy enough fibre to finish your project in one go to avoid slight shade variations from batch to batch (this is in the nature of natural wool). If colour matching is important to you get a free sample first.

For spinning...

100g of fibre spins 100g of yarn the yardage of which depends on how finely you spin. The weight chart above is a helpful guide but will depend on the size and tension of the final garment.

    For felting...

    If the fibre is suitable for felting you'll find that 100 grams will compress down to a grapefruit sized solid 3D shape (approximately). If you only need smaller amounts try our mini selection packs.

    Core wool is a cost effective way to quickly build up 3D shapes before topping off. Another popular product is pre-felt which is ready for further needle felting, or wet felting, or to be used as a base for your project.
