80% superfine alpaca & 20% silk; each skein has 100 grams & 280 yards. inspired by julie fowlis' beautiful gaelic version of the beatles song "blackbird", this colourway has been handpainted in the deep blue-black shades of a blackbird's feathers.
these yarns are test skeins for new colourways which, for whatever reason, didn't make it through the "audition process". maybe they just didn't work out the way they were meant to, or they ended up too similar to a colourway already in stock. the skeins are not flawed, but are being sold at a discounted rate in order to clear out some space for even more new-colourway-tests!!
