The Flying Fleece

Estrela - Golden (100 gm)

Estrela is a mill-spun Portuguese yarn, made from the famous Serra da Estrela wool. It is sturdy and yet soft enough for next-to-skin garments. This lightly processed, rustic yarn base was dyed by hand using only natural dyes and and non-toxic mordanting techniques.

"Golden" was dyed using local onion skins and mordanted to obtain a colourfast result.
