One of my favourite hand dyed rainbow wool tops ever. (Here is another one.) Look at all the neons in this colour combo! Swoon. This is a one-of-a-kind colourway in the sense that colours will never strike in the same way again, but I can repeat the use of the same colours to replicate a similar result.

There is a whole 100 grams (or 3.5 ounces) of woolly goodness for you to play with as you wish, be it spinning or felting.

Is merino a good wool top for spinning?

Merino is one of the most popular wools for spinning. Merino is a smooth wool, the medium staple length is great for beginner spinners and experts alike. The softer of this fibre also makes it perfect for next-to-skin projects.

Is this merino a wool top or a roving?

I hope you think this is a good question, because there is definitely a difference between combed wool top and roving. Both expressions are often used to represent the same item, but they are quite different. In fact, I am inserting this explanation here so I can use the expression “wool roving” correctly and still please the search algorithm gods. Sneaky.

Combed wool top such as this are processed in the mill to remove the short fibre staples, and all the longer remaining fibres have been combed to face the same direction.

Wool roving, on the other hand, still retains some shorter fibres and not all face the same direction, so it will have a fuzzier appearance.

Both are fantastic types of fibre processing, they’re just different.

I’ve done my very best to ensure colours show true, but please bear in mind your monitor settings might differ from mine.

  • 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.
