Description

Ready for some neon fuchsia and violet goodness? This superwash merino wool top was hand dyed by me to brighten up your spinning mojo. Because it’s a superwash combed top, it doesn’t felt, making it the perfect fibre for a spinning project where you want the warmth of wool but not the extra hassle of super delicate hand washing.

This colourway is an in-your-face blend of neon pink and violet, plus a gorgeous turquoise. There’s a dusty pink in there as well for an added spot of variety.

Looking for a similar colourway but in non-superwash wool? Untitled VIII might just be your thing.

 

Superwash wool top - what does it mean?

First thing’s first: wool top can sometimes be referred to as “roving” but they are two different things: in combed wool top all the shorter staple fibres have been removed, and the wool is all facing the same direction. In roving, the shorter staple fibres can still be present and the wool is a bit more jumbled, i.e., the fibres don’t all go in the same direction. They’re both great, they’re just not the same!

Superwash wool has been treated at the mill to not felt. This makes the fibre just slightly more slippery but is still a wonderful combed top for beginner spinners.

This combed top is best suited for worsted spinning. It won’t be the best choice for creating yarns where you’d want a more “grabby” fibre, such as core spinning.

Because it doesn’t felt, wool top can’t be used on its own in wet felting, but can be added to other non-superwash fibres to yield lovely results when nuno felting.
This wool top can be used for needle felting but it would be best suited as a top layer instead of a “filler.”

Colour disclaimer

Although I’ve done my best to match these photos with real life colour, neons are understandably hard to capture without looking blown-out (they’re still super bright, though).

Also, please note that your monitor settings might differ from mine, so what looks accurate on mine might look slightly different on yours.

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.
