Cat’s Eye – Tonal Heather
Equal parts rustic and refined, this hand-dipped tonal semi-solid was dyed at the optimal temperature/pH to preserve the luster of silk and softness of alpaca. The beautiful heathered effect is created by the linen in this blend which does not accept the dye used for wool.
