Details About Our Custom Blends

Hi! Hello. We're trying something new here at Created by Elsie B - primarily dyed to order semi-solids. Our aim with this is to make all our developed tonal colorways easily accessible for your fiber needs; even if they aren't already dyed, labeled, and sitting on a shelf. 
You've got 3 different listings to choose from: 100% Wool, Popular Blended Fibers, & Custom Blended Fibers. This blog post details the Custom Blended fiber bases. Custom blends are fibers milled specifically for Created by Elsie B and we're excited to be able to offer these goodies!

I mention this in the listing itself, but turn around time for these dyed to order fibers is currently 8 weeks; that time will vary depending on a variety of factors, but that's the baseline estimate & we'll be in contact after your order is placed in the event we'll need to extend your ship-by date. 
Now on to the fiber bases: 


BFL Silver Sparkle 
75% Blue Faced Leicester, 17% 25 micron Merino, 8% Silver Stellina 
Stellina is a fairly new fibre made from polyester and nylon. Very similar to Angelina fibre. 
• BFL micron count: 25-27 
• Merino micron count: 25 
• Next-to-skin for most  

 

Corriedale/ Bamboo/ Silk 
50% Corriedale, 25% Bamboo, 25% Silk
Bamboo and Silk for added strength and shimmer. Bamboo is a viscose fiber that doesn't take on dyes and remains white after dyeing. The silk we use is primarily Mulberry though occasionally we use Tussah - if you have a preference, please note it in your order.  
• Corriedale micron count: 25-30 
• Bamboo micron count: 19 
• Silk micron count: 10-13 (Mulberry), or 26-36 (Tussah) 
• Next-to-skin for some 

 

Falkland Merino/ Rose 
60% Falkland Merino, 40% Rose Fiber 
Rose fiber is a new biodegradable plant cellulose fiber harvested from the stalks of roses. Rose fiber is as silky, white, and strong as mulberry silk and feels similar to viscose bamboo.
• Falkland Merino micron count: 20-22 
• Rose micron count: 19

 

Merino Gold Sparkle 
75% 21m Merino, 17% 25 micron Merino, 8% Gold Stellina
This is a fun fiber base for my sparkle lovers! Stellina is similar to Angelina in texture & it stays gold during dyeing. I do want to note that you'll want to wash this in
 cool/lukewarm water when caring for it because very heated water can damage the sparkle (just FYI- I haven't had anyone come back to me complaining, but I found this out the hard way)
• Merino micron count: 21 & 25
• Stellina doesn't have a micron count
• Next to skin for most
• Beginner/Intermediate friendly (Merino overall isn't super recommended for beginners, but that's what I learned on so..... I'm not gonna tell you it can't be done)

Merino Silver Sparkle 
75% 21m Merino, 17% 25 micron Merino, 8% Silver Stellina
