What’s special about this yarn?
Fiber characteristics influence how the finished yarn behaves. Sometimes a blend is made with fibers that compliment each other with one having characteristics the other lacks. Other times a blend seeks to maximize its components to increase the natural characteristics of its components. Both gotland and rose have a lot of drape and shine, and together they produce something new. An extremely drapey yarn that glows with an inner light while also having a fuzzy halo reminiscent of mohair.
The yarn will take dye well, and should perform well with acid dyes. Rose is unique among cellulose fibers as one of the very few that take acid dye relatively well.
