Why blend these fibers?
Pearl is a very unique cellulose fiber, since its made from pearl powder that’s combined with cellulose. Together this makes a fiber that behaves more like wool than most cellulose fibers. It has a natural texture and a shorter staple length than other cellulose fibers.
Baby camel, merino and rambouillet are very easy to spin on their own. Adding pearl doesn’t change this, which makes this blend a great introduction to spinning cellulose fibers. This blend maintains the perfectly balanced softness of baby camel/merino/rambouillet while adding pearl’s unique pearly shine.
What can it do?
Perfect for spinning, needle felting, or dyeing.
Ideal for next to skin garments.
How does it feel?
It’s a cushy cloud and is the perfect way to reward yourself for the hard work of learning to spin. Plus what’s more extravagant than having actual pearl in fiber?
