    Minimum order quantity - 1

    Use this balanced botany yarn with the high twist botany yarns to create contrasting areas in woven collapse (crepe) woollen fabrics. All three of the high twist yarns are illustrated (sorry, High twist botany wool yarn, worsted 2/36, 30tpi no longer available).

    We have tested the yarns reaction to dyeing with acid dyes at 80°C, and have found no significant reduction in the twist. Set at 15epi we created a strongly collapsed fabric. The highest twist is an excellent weft but not easy to use as a warp. We have been able to warp up with the 18tpi yarn, using the old trick of a ‘pop' sock on the spool to avoid kinking during yarn delivery. The yarns are just right for light open weave fabrics used in scarves and apparel panels, as well as decorative work.
