A beautiful high luster wool with a well-defined crimp ideal for medium to thick yarns. These locks have been scoured only. Give a light wash and they are ready to use in many different craft applications such as hand spinning, carding, combing, felting, weaving, knitting, and more!
Fiber Content: 100% English Leicester Wool
Micron count: 38-40 microns
Staple length: 6-8 inches
Preparation: Scoured and dyed locks
Ideas for Use:
- Separate into individual groups of color.
Spinning - Open the fiber out and spin a soft single thread. Ply with fine cotton, silk, or commercial woolen thread to strengthen the yarn for knitting. The fine thread will be almost hidden in the yarn and won't obscure the fabulous colors.
Weaving - Use the beautiful shiny staples for extra texture in handwoven fabrics. Hand-knot the staples into beautiful rugs or wall hangings.
Felting - Use the colored staples as surface decoration. They look fantastic lightly felted into the surface of a natural color felt.
*The sheep are well cared for and are not mulesed.
