    This is our slightly unusual take on the traditional Merino and Silk blend. Falkland may not be as soft as Merino but it's not far off and in our opinion, it's nicer to spin! Seacell is long, silky and smooth and is often used as a silk substitute. Together they produce a very soft yet versatile yarn with a subtle sheen and a creamy colour.

    We've marked this as good candidate for dyeing because of the wonderful effects you can achieve. The seacell won't readily take up acid dye so dyed fibre and yarn will have white silky threads running through! Falkland felts well and the Seacell will behave as silk when needle felted or wet felted.

    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.

    For spinning...

    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.

      For felting...

      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.
