Micron 38-40, Staple length approx. 17.5cm (7ins), washed

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.

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