Super Wonderful

I’ve been spinning for twenty years. It’s hard to imagine a more fun spin than the Ashland Bay Merino Wool 19.5 Micron. It’s a 2.75” staple which makes it a good candidate for woolen spinning, but the prep of the fiber makes it a good candidate for worsted spinning. I’m a woolen spinner, so it took a few ounces of getting the right feel with this fiber, but the end result is fantastic. Set your wheel up properly and you can spin super fine or bulky with this stuff. It’s a joy.

A micron count is the measurement used to express the diameter of individual fibers. The lower the microns the finer the fiber. Merino wool is generally less than 24 micron in diameter. Basic merino types, all of which are offered at Paradise Fibers, include: Strong (broad) wool with a 23-24.5 micron count, medium wool with a 19.5-22 Micron count, Fine wool with an 18.5-19.5 Micron Count, Superfine with a 15-18.5 Micron Count, and Ultrafine with an 11.5-15 Micron Count. All of which are high demand fibers for their properties and durability. Suitable for blending, dyeing, weaving, spinning, and felting.
