Woods Whiteface/Ramie BLEND
Our own blend of Whitefaced Woodland and ramie fibre!
WOODLAND WALK is a fusion of natural white British Whitefaced Woodland wool blended with Ramie Vegetable Fibre (made from nettles!)
Whitefaced Woodland is, perhaps, not as popular as it should be – we think it rivals Jacob in the “hardwearing but soft enough” category of British fibre and the Ramie adds a little something extra to this pairing. Woodland is an absolute joy to spin - the yarn has a soft, almost brushed cotton like hand to it yet retains a little bit of sheen from the Ramie. The Ramie will resist acid dyes so you can create some spectacular effects. This is definitely one to try!
