Micron 38-40, Staple length approx. 17.5cm (7ins).
A beautiful high lustre wool with a well defined crimp ideal for medium to thick yarns.

Available in 100gm, 400gm or 800gm bags. Each bag contains all the colours of the rainbow!

Ideas for Use:

  • Separate into individual groups of colour.
  • Spinning - Open the fibre out and spin a soft single thread. Ply with a fine cotton, silk or commercial woollen thread to strengthen the yarn for knitting. The fine thread will be almost hidden in the yarn and won't obscure the fabulous colours.
  • Weaving - Use the beautiful shiney staples for extra texture in handwoven fabrics. Handknot the staples into beautiful rugs or wall hangings.
  • Felting - Use the coloured staples as surface decoration. They look fantastic lightly felted into the surface of a natural colour felt.

*The sheep are well cared for and are not mulesed.
