Rainbow dyed, this beautiful high lustre wool from Ashford has a well defined crimp and is ideal for creating medium to thick yarns. Micron 38-40, Staple length approx. 17.5cm (7ins). Available in 100gm, 1kg 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
