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!)

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.
