Try a 4 oz bag while stock lasts! Ashland Bay Superfine 15.5 Micron White Australian Merino is as "soft as a cloud". This description came straight from the mouth of our fiber guru. This unbelievably soft merino originates from Australia and is a great value for the price.
As typical with finer fibers, the staples are a little shorter than normal merino at approximately 23/4 inches long.
This elegant 15.5 Micron White Merino will definitely have you feeling like you're covered in cashmere at a fraction of the price.
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.
