One of 7 of my new colours for A New Dawn Collection - here in the rustic Gong Fu base. The Watchman is a rich gorgeous blend of deep seagreen and navy blue. The overall effect is a deep navy/green. A complex recipe that brings out the rich tonal variations in each skein. Just a really beautiful deep rich colour.
Tonal variation throughout the skein.
The Watchman - 3 ply heavy lace weight Tussah Silk - Gong Fu (hl)
This is a gutsy plied Tussah silk ... 2 plies but running at 500 metres to 100gms which puts it in the heavy lace/ light fingering (3 ply) category.
Splices, slubs and a possible occasional ply knot.
100% Tussah silk - 500 metres / 100 grms
The New Dawn collection is based on my travels around the world - not just the Dawn of a New Day but also the heralding the beginning of something new. The birth of Spring: a revolution to bring new hope to a land: new thinking and even a new website for Green Tea Yarns!
The collection is made up of 7 new semi solid colours: The Red Centre, Time Traveller, The Watchman, Wild Oats, Sky Awakening, The Uprising and Rose Wine
