Makes light and squishy yarn

At first I wasn’t sure if I would like this fiber but after chain plying I am in love. It is a lovely delicate and airy yarn. I’m looking forward to dying it and knitting with it

Takes dye brilliantly!

I have been experimenting with dyeing and spinning different fibers since getting my first spinning wheel and had to try this one after seeing all the positive reviews. I was disappointed by how rough it felt out of the package, but it softened up quite a bit after dyeing. It is one of the strongest smelling wools I’ve ever worked with, but that just made me chuckle while I worked. The smell is less noticeable after dyeing and drying. Anyway, it took the dye really well and I ended up with some gorgeous neons! I can’t wait to spin it.

Product Details

Cheviot Wool top in a beautiful natural white color.  Helical crimp - 3 dimensional structures that gives the wool resilience and bounce.  The micron count is between 27-33 and this fiber has a 4-5 inch staple length.  The wool top is open without being slippery making it an excellent wool for beginning spinners.  The yarn produced from Cheviot wool is a pleasure to knit, crochet and weave with. 1 lb. equals about 20 yards.

HISTORY:

Cheviot sheep originated in the Cheviot Hills on the border of England and Scotland.  They were referred to as the Border Cheviot and are the foundation stock for the Brecknock and the North Country Cheviots.  This hardy breed can withstand harsh environments and are known for being great mothers.  Cheviot tweeds are a traditional woven fabric, famous for their crispness and durability, making it a popular suiting material for both men and women.
