I don’t know about you, but I love hydrangeas. They’re just so big and lush, I just had to hand dye some wool top to celebrate their riot of blues, pinks and purples. 

This merino wool top (sometimes mistakenly called a roving, a different type of fibre preparation) was hand dyed by me here  in my tiny Edinburgh studio. It is a one-of-a-kind colourway.

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

Although I have done my very best to convey the true colours of this wool, please note that my monitor settings may vary from yours.

Care instructions: merino wool top, like all natural fibres, should be stored in a breathable container with a moth-repellant item such as a lavender sachet or cedar wood balls. Do not store under heavy items so fibre doesn’t end up squished.
Once used in your preferred craft, if washing, use a wool-specific wash, dry horizontally and store away from direct sunlight.

  • 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.
