We have taken the beautiful White Gum Wool and handyed it. Our dyers are Wendy Koohlof and Cheryl Attenborough, they bring to the dyeing there own colour emphasis.   Their colours are generally not repeatable. We can arrange for a custom dye in a requested quantity.  

The 5 ply us  a 30/70 blend of tussah silk and White Gum Wool superfine merino.  It's a bulky 5-ply, due to the high loft of WGW fibre.  The golden tussah silk makes the natural colour a cream rather than a pure white.  We have found that you can also knit this with 4 or 8 ply patterns an extremely versatile yarn.

The silk provides a wonderful sheen to the fibre.
