What can I use it for?

  

Use with confidence for all your spinning, felting and blending projects. A popular choice for spinning on the wheel or drop spindle. Can be dyed with very nice results. Great for wet felting and needle felting. There are also limitless possibilities for blending with other wool or fibres such as silks, flax, bamboo etc.

How much fibre will I need?

This will depend on how finely you spin plus the size and tension of the final knitted garment. The weights below are a helpful guide but cannot be guaranteed. If you are unsure, always buy a little bit more than you think you'll need (that's what stashes are for!)

Not sure?

You can order a FREE SAMPLE of this item to try, feel and colour match at home! Please note: we allow a maximum of 8 samples in total per order and post & packing will still apply.

Natural & biodegradable

Wool is 100% natural. Every year sheep produce a new fleece making it a renewable fibre source. At the end of its useful life it can be returned to the soil where it will decompose.
