Choose from this extensive selection of prepared fibres for hand spinning, felt making or paper making. Here is the place to buy silk and wool fibres for creating your own hand spun yarns, colourful felted items, and fused silk paper. The white and cream fibres can be dyed to any colour using Acid Dyes for protein fibres such as wool, silk or mohair, or Procion MX fibre reactive dyes for cellulose plant fibres such as cotton, flax and bamboo.
The natural wool fibres include roving from sheep breeds such as Herdwick, Wensleydale, Cheviot and Jacob and many of these are offered in more than one natural colour, such as the Bluefaced Leicester which you can buy in dark grey, oatmeal or white, and the Shetland wool top which is available in four colour choices. Each of these valuable wool fibres has different properties – the Shetland is a fine wool with a medium staple and will spin to a soft open woollen yarn, while Devon Longwool top is a strong fibre, has good lustre and a long staple for spinning a rug yarn.
In addition to the natural coloured wool tops, are the dyed Merino wool tops which are quick to felt using the traditional felt making technique, or can be sculpted to a smooth finish with a felting needle.
The extended selection of fibres will delight the hand spinner with the choice of hair fibres which include cashmere, camel and alpaca, the range of silks which include Mulberry silk, reeled silk and silk hankies, plus a choice of blends including the Mulberry silk and Merino.
Here also available to buy are a range of plant fibres derived from cotton, bamboo, flax and soybean, plus the lustrous tencel made from wood pulp and the milk protein fibre, Casein.
