It's a beautiful black and brown color, a little coarse, and worked beautifully for a felting project I had.
This Black Welsh Mountain Top has a lovely blend of black and brown. The roving is a little course but soft to the touch. Fun Stuff!
While purchasing this fiber I was informed that it is more of an "outer wear" garment. I'mnot so sure about that, it's lovely! That being said, I personally perfer the wool feel to my wool yarn. The Viber spins like a dream. The hand feel is nice, smooth. I am totally in love with the colour. If you get a chance, look up this breed, very, very interesting Thank you PF for bringing new to us fibers to expand our experiences
I adore the fiber from Paradise and always super pleased at the quality and prompt delivery of my treasures.
