Nests of Roving: Contemporary Moves
These 'Mini Fibre Nests' are actually cloud-like balls of hand pulled roving, blended from fine Merino, Silk and Trilobal Fibre in a Sparkle Blend.
A special blend of fine Merino Wool, super-soft Alpaca, luxurious hand-dyed Silks and sparkling Trilobal Nylon fibres. All skilfully blended on a hackle and carefully hand-pulled through a Diz, creating this lovely, light and open roving which is then rolled into small balls and is ready to be used in your next creative project.
This series of colourways are all inspired by dance music and styles of dance from around the world.
This one in the series is called 'Contemporary Moves' - a nod towards the graceful beauty, agility and undeniable strength demonstrated by contemporary dancers, but also to the breathtakingly innovative, sparse stage sets and serene costumes of their performances. Going to the theatre to see a contemporary dance company is always a special treat for our family and we like to savour every minute of the movement and the music while we are there!
This particular blend also contains a large amount of a super-soft and fluffy natural coloured Alpaca - chosen for it's light, airy but warm features, whilst also lending lovely natural tone to this mix. These amazing little nests are perfect for a variety of textile art projects - Wet and Nuno-Felting, Spinning and Weaving, Embroidery, Needle Felting, Embellishing and many other mixed media arts.
They are blended to order, and so the colours/fibre content may vary slightly but…the basic 'recipe of these fibres' will always be the same. Enjoy each beautifully made mini-nest as a unique work of art and revel in the varied nature of the materials and the inspiration it will add to your creative process.
Available as 50g, 100g or 150g or more.
