Flamingo Croquet BFL/Silk
I love the scene in Alice in Wonderland where the Queen of Hearts challenges Alice to a game of croquet and the mallets are flamingos. Alice's flamingo is particularly uncooperative.
*Please note that these are hand-dyed in small batches and colors may vary slightly from braid to braid.
A 75/25 blend of BFL and silk. Part of the English Longwool Family, the Bluefaced Leicester (BFL) breed was developed in the early twentieth century. The fiber is fine, with a micron count of 24-28, silky, and lustrous. It’s fine enough to wear next to the skin and durable enough to wear well. Silk adds strength, softness, and shine.
