Raise your hand if you’re craving some saturated wool for spinning (or felting)! This beautiful hand dyed wool top is sure to liven your crafting plans. At 23 microns thin, this is the perfect fibre for next-to-skin projects.

The unapologetic bright pinks, purples, violet and yellow look stunning together, so your finished object will look gorgeous no matter how you choose to spin or felt your fibre.

This wool for spinning or felting is a certified organic Merino and dyed in a one-of-a-kind colourway. There’s 100g combed wool top for you to play with as you wish.

What is the difference between combed wool top and roving?

It’s very likely you’ve seen this type of fibre preparation being called wool roving. This happens particularly in the US. However, this isn’t roving, this is combed wool top. What is the difference? I’m glad you asked.

Wool roving is processed in a way that retains some of the shorter fibres and they are jumbled together with the longer fibres in all directions. Roving’s appearance is slightly fuzzy, so it looks less shiny than wool top.

Wool top retains only the fibre’s longest staples and they’re all combed in the same direction, resulting in a length of wool that is shinier and looks “tidier” in appearance.

Both wool processing methods are great, they’re just not the same! The more you know.

A little disclaimer about colour

I’ve done my best to show off this wool’s real colours, and they show true on my end. However, your monitor settings might not be the same as mine, so there might be a small difference. Thank you for your understanding.

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.
