Micron 38-40, Staple length approx. 17.5cm (7ins) well cared for, not mulesed sheep. A beautiful high lustre wool with a well defined crimp ideal for medium to thick yarns. The sheep are well cared for and are not mulesed.

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.
