I recommend this product
Affordable and great for dying!

Thought I would give some new fiber types a try; I typically work with very soft fibers like merino and alpaca as a tactical preference. The roving itself is very nice, but not my personal favorite as it's a medium weight rather than a fine one. It does felt easily, which would be great for thouse who want to felt. Overall, I would say take a chance and see if this is for you even though it wasn't for me since it was high-quality, very affordable, and takes dye great!

Not quite as soft as some reviews say but...

For the price it is a great deal. I think it will be soft enough to wear close to the skin. It is as soft as some other fiber I purchased at the same time, a solid merino top called "lightning". So you can't beat the price. It will definitely spin well and I am looking forward to dyeing it. Lots of fiber for a great price.

Product Details

This Corriedale cross has all the characteristics of a natural Corriedale wool, but has been crossbred to create a softer wool.  The Corriedale breed hails originally from Australia and New Zealand where farmers decided to cross Merino ewes with Lincoln or Leicester males.  These sheep are now raised worldwide.  The fleeces are densely packed but each fiber is thicker than its Merino counterpart.  Corriedale Cross has a beautiful natural luster to it.  With an almost white/ecru natural color, a long staple length, and a definite crimp this wool is perfect for beginner and advanced spinners.  This fiber is soft!  Perfect for dying projects or felting projects.  The average micron count for fibers is between 25 and 32. 

This fiber is perfect for needle felting!  The springy texture and individual large diameters of the fibers make it easier for the needle barbs to catch the fibers. Adding Corriedale to a wet felting project helps slow the felting process giving you more control over the final result, also making the finished wet felted project bulkier.
