Great product overall.

I love this product. I bought these in natural so that way I could dye them whatever color I wanted. However, I like that they give the choice of color options. I have used a small amount to add texture to my fiber and they work very well. They also do a great job of adding the tweed effect to yarns.

Using Merino Wool Nepps in Felting

Really love these little guys to add accents and texture to my felting projects--i.e., hat bands, scarves, etc. Just sprinkle them around to get amazing effects. Carol

Great little felting element

Love this product...bought the natural ones. Was introduced to them when I got some in my Fiber of the Month Box. I use them in my nuno felted scarves to provide a pop of color and texture. Sprinkle them singlely or in clumps. They also are a great way to use the last bit of dye up. I will throw a hand full in the dye bath after removing the fiber when there is some left over. or put the extra stock solution in a baby food jar and stuff in some nepps.

Product Details

The general definition of nepps 'hopelessly entangled masses of fibers'. Nepps appear naturally in some spun yarns (tweed) and is more common in certain types of fibers. However, there are two distinguishable types of nepps. Those with plant matter or 'seeds' wrapped in fiber and those of just tangled and slightly felted fiber. These nepps are free of seeds although some vegetable matter may appear. A vast majority of nepps are caused by handling and processing. Almost any mechanical process can cause the formation of nepps, but the most likely ones include harvesting, ginning, and opening/cleaning in the textile mill. These nepps are Merino Wool.

Nepps are generally removed and discarded, however they are perfect for use in creating texture in batts and felted pieces. Or dyed and spun into your yarns to create a fun texture and a truly unique creation. We have dyed and undyed options available as well as a sample pack including all.
