Sliver (combed top) 100g (3.5 oz)

Skylark heather is a pale lilac, reminiscent of the dawn light when the skylarks begin their liquid trilling song.

Skylark heather is "dyed-in-the-wool", literally--the scoured fibre is dyed in several colours, then blended and "gilled" to mix the colours thoroughly and align them in the direction of spin.  I asked Design Spun, my mill, to keep aside a quantity of the sliver for hand-spinners and felters to play with.  Have fun!

The sliver is taken from the step just before spinning at Design Spun, so it is gilled many times to give it the worsted fibre alignment, then combed.  It is a delight to work with either for hand-spinning or felting.
