Arctic Icelandic/Nylon BLEND
Price per 100g
A gorgeous blend of Icelandic Wool and Faux Mohair!
ARCTIC SHIMMER is exclusive to FibreHut. It is a blend of natural white Icelandic wool and Faux Mohair! Icelandic wool is often used for outer-wear garments where warmth is essential. Faux Mohair is man made from nylon and is designed to feel like the real thing – strong and slightly whispy.
This blended fibre top produces a woolly yarn with a bit of shimmer and halo. It is perfect for sturdy outdoor garments and accessories. It's an easy spin – you can introduce loftness by spinning semi-woollen and the nylon will take on more of a shiny colour when using acid dyes.
- 100g - mittens, socks, hat
- 300g - cushion cover, shawl, long scarf
- 600g - baby blanket, cardigan, ladies sweater
Always buy enough fibre to finish your project in one go to avoid slight shade variations from batch to batch (this is in the nature of natural wool). If colour matching is important to you get a free sample first.
100g of fibre spins 100g of yarn the yardage of which depends on how finely you spin. The weight chart above is a helpful guide but will depend on the size and tension of the final garment.
If the fibre is suitable for felting you'll find that 100 grams will compress down to a grapefruit sized solid 3D shape (approximately). If you only need smaller amounts try our mini selection packs.
Core wool is a cost effective way to quickly build up 3D shapes before topping off. Another popular product is pre-felt which is ready for further needle felting, or wet felting, or to be used as a base for your project.
