A beautiful high lustre wool with a well-defined crimp ideal for medium to thick yarns.

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.
