One of my favourite hand dyed neon spinning wool tops ever (along with this one). Look at the in-your-face yellows, oranges and pink, paired with those sultry teals and greens! Swoon.

This fabulous merino wool top (also sometimes mistakenly described as roving, a different type of fibre preparation) was hand dyed by me here in Edinburgh. 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 dyes to replicate a similar result.

This super soft merino neon spinning wool is also rather perfect for felting, and there is a whole 100 grams (or 3.5 ounces) for you to play with as you wish.

Is this wool top or wool roving?

The correct way to describe this type of wool processing is combed wool top. This means all the shorter staples have been removed and the remaining, longer fibres have all been combed in the same direction.

Some countries have taken to calling it wool roving, but that is actually a different type of processing: wool roving retains some of the shorter staples and the fibre doesn’t all go in the same direction, thus being a bit fuzzier in appearance.

What is the easiest wool to spin?

Merino is definitely the most popular wool to spin and felt with, and for good reason. Merino wool is soft, fantastic for next-to-skin projects. It has a medium staple, a perfect length for beginner spinners (not so long that you’ll need to draft a lot, not so short that it’ll disappear from your hands too easily). 

Merino is also a fabulous fibre for felting, and the high micron count of this particular wool top means it has the potential to wet felt and needle felt quite easily.

  • 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.
