Black dyed Merino wool fibre specially and carefully prepared for a good felting and fine spinning performance. The colours are consistent and repeatable and can be blended using hand carders to extend the palette still further for felt makers and hand spinners. This fine, dyed wool roving felts very easily and with little effort. Merino wool works well with the wet felting technique and is suitable for needle felting projects.
The wool roving can be spun into a fine yarn as it is, or it can be blended with other fibres such as Mulberry silk, or it can be used for chunky arm knitting; either use the full span of the roving or split along the length for a more manageable thickness. Knit away with a slight twist of the roving with each stitch.
Super soft Merino 64s wool tops, 23 microns, fibre length 7-8cm. Choose from 50g or 100g (100g of wool fibre will make a square of felt approximately 30cm wide).
Recommended felting needle size: 38 gauge
