Lightning White: a pure white wool roving perfect for blending colours to pastels, adding a glint of white to eyes, or for picking out details such as the crest of waves. This colour has to be an essential addition to any felt makers stash!
The Merino wool fibre is 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.
These fine dyed wool tops felt very easily and with little effort. Merino wool works well with needle felting and wet felting techniques. 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. Use for textile craft projects such as chunky arm knitting; split along the length for a more manageable thickness and 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
