Options available

Lustrous wool with a well defined crimp to felt, tease or spin into medium to thick yarns. Hand washed and dyed in New Zealand. Colors will vary.

New size! 100 grams.

The sheep are well cared for and are not mulesed.

Ideas for Use:

  • Separate into individual groups of colour.
  • Spinning - Open the fibre out and spin a soft single thread. Ply with a fine cotton, silk or commercial woollen thread to strengthen the yarn for knitting. The fine thread will be almost hidden in the yarn and won't obscure the fabulous colours.
  • Weaving - Use the beautiful shiney staples for extra texture in handwoven fabrics. Handknot the staples into beautiful rugs or wall hangings.
  • Felting - Use the coloured staples as surface decoration. They look fantastic lightly felted into the surface of a natural colour felt.
