Merino natural ecru


Super soft Merino combed wool top (roving) is probably the number 1 choice for spinning, felting, arm knitting, blending and dyeing!

This is 100% natural ecru (white) Merino 21mic / 70's combed wool top. You just can't go wrong with this popular wool top! Ours is from either South Africa (Cape) or South America depending on availability and is always from non-mulsed sheep.

  • Microns: 21mic
  • Fibre Length: approx 75-80mm
  • Top/Roving Length: approx 4 metres per 100g
  • Top/Roving Width: approx 1 inch

What can I use it for?


A popular choice for spinning on the wheel or drop spindle. Although already dyed you could still over dye many of the lighter colours if you wanted to. Great for wet felting and needle felting. There are also limitless possibilities for blending Merino with other wool or fibres such as silk, flax, bamboo and many more.

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!)

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.

Monitor, phone & tablet settings can affect the product colours and shades shown. There could also be slight shade variations from batch to batch due.
