What's in the box?
- Scrumptious Shetland
With all the qualities of one of our best British wools this humbug is a blend of white and moorit Shetland. Spin randomly for a tweedy effect or seperate out and have some fun! Shetland yarns can be used for anything from the most delicate shawls to chunky sweaters and blankets. Also excellent for felting.
- Joyful Jacob
This humbug is a blend of 3 natural shades - white, grey and black Jacob (not a true black). Jacob is a very versatile fibre ideal for spinning, felting and dyeing plus many other crafts.
- Bountiful BFL
Bluefaced Leicester (BFL) humbug is a blend of natural white, oatmeal and brown combed top. It is a fine, soft and lustrous longwool breed and is a good 'British' alternative to merino. It is a popular choice for garments as it is soft enough to be worn next to the skin.
A beautiful fine and soft blend of natural grey and white merino combed top. Merino wool has played a long and fasinating role in international fashion over the centuries but its big break came after WW1 when Coco Chanel produced a dress of fine wool jersey.
This item is 100% natural wool. Every year sheep produce a new fleece, making wool a renewable fibre source. FibreHut are official supporters of the campaign for wool.
