The Ashland Bay Dyed Merino Top is one of our best selling fibers here in the shop; with a soft touch and unique color blends, we're sure you will love spinning,blending and felting with it.
Fiber wet felts well; however, the colors tend to run together, so the multiple colors are no longer visible.
This Merino is so easy to spin.
Love spinning this.
The sage was great but in other instances the colors shown online did not match what I received. For example the color shown for cranberry did not show large areas of sky blue in the blend, but more resembled a, well, a cranberry!! Personally I think a bold blue looks awful among the pretty reds and maroons of the rest of the fibers. I love your products but will not be buying more or the Constellation colors which have similar issues. Also I have placed several orders in the last 2 months online and on etsy and did not receive one roving—starry night—I wrote to ask about it but did not get a response. Otherwise you have beautiful solid colors…
This fiber is so delicious - wonderful soft feel and the colors are vibrant! Just beautiful! I can't wait to spin it.
