Now this is something I seldom offer: a shiny, silky and lofty carded mohair wool batt. 

Mohair wool can be hard to hand process, and this batt took me a really long time to achieve: from raw fleece to washing, combing and then carding, this was truly a labour of love (so much so that I’ve considered keeping it to myself many times).

This carded mohair wool batt has super light and thin natural gray fibres. 

If spinning: I recommend you spin it thin. It will yield a very strong and shiny yarn. 

If felting: wet felting is recommended, and it shouldn’t take too long for the fibres to join to each other due to the high micron count of this particular fleece.

If dyeing: start with a cold soak and heat it up very gradually. Take care not to overheat the water as this fibre may easily felt for being so delicate.

The staple length on this fleece is 10-13cm and this batt is 100g in weight.

The goat who grew this mohair comes from a high-welfare British farm.

Please be aware there might be a small amount of vegetable matter in each batt, despite my best efforts to clean it as thoroughly as possible – happy goats play outdoors and can get messy!

  • 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.
