Description

Organic Merino wool top is one of my favourite wool for spinning. It slides smoothly and I can get as thin or chunky a yarn as I like.

“Untitled IX” was hand dyed with different shades of blue, interspersed with dashes of violet and pink.  All the colours go beautifully together so your finished object will look gorgeous no matter how you choose to spin or felt your fibre.

This certified organic Merino wool roving is seriously soft: 23 microns thin, superb for next-of-skin projects. You have 100g (or 3.5oz) to play with.

Is this wool top or roving?

You might often hear (or read!) this type of wool being referred to as “roving.” However, this is not accurate – combed wool top such as this one has had all the shorter staples removed, and all the fibres are combed in the same direction. This type of processing makes for a very smooth wool, perfect for worsted spinning or wet felting.

Roving looks similar, but is different in the sense that the shorter staples are still present, and the wool can go in different directions. That type of fibre processing makes it excellent for needle felting and woollen spinning.

Both types of wool are excellent, they’re just not the same! If you see me listing this as roving, I’m only doing it because the pesky internet algorithm demands it (sorry).

A disclaimer about colour

I have done my best to ensure my photos reflect the true colours of my fibre. However, bear in mind that your monitor settings might differ from mine.

CARE INSTRUCTIONS

  • Keep wool top/roving or art batts in a dry room away from direct sunlight. Airtight boxes are recommended. Don’t place anything heavy on top of the fibre to avoid squishing it.
    Handle silk hankies with moisturised hands to avoid them sticking to your skin.
  • I recommend adding lavender sachets to the storage container for pest prevention.
  • Hand wash your finished product separately using wool-specific detergents, dry flat. Hand dyed fibres may bleed a little in the first couple of washes.
