Ashford NZ Wool Fiber to Spin and Felt description:
Brighten your spinning and felting with colorful New Zealand Corriedale wool sliver (top). Ashford's wool fiber has a huge array of colors - ready to spin, blend and felt.
Beginning spinners, this is your fiber! Its natural crimp is even and smooth, but also well-defined which keeps it from slipping through your fingers as quickly as some finer breeds. This bit of extra time makes it easier to focus on the mechanics of spinning. Even starting out it's more fun to spin with colors you like and experiment with combining hues - Ashford delivers rich hues to try your hand with and since it's available in small quantities you can mix and beknds to your heart's content!
Experienced spinners will enjoy playing with the range of colors as well and the easy consistent spin makes a great yarn on its own or blended with other fibers. Mix, match, and card the solid colors to create subtle heathers and rainbow designer yarns. Plus, creating a color wheel for a deeper dive into color theory is easy with Ashford's saturated color palette.
Felters love Ashford tops alone or blended to create infinite colors and it's a great medium texture for both bigger pieces or smaller details in both wet and needle (dry) felting. Ashford fiber is ideal for felting picturesque scenes, masks, children's toys - any project where you need only a small amount of a specific color.
Ashford's Corriedale is 100% pure New Zealand wool ethically produced from non-mulesed, grass-fed sheep from farms local to the mill. The processing is done using an eco-firendly, biodegradable wash and dyed with ecologically safe Oeko-Tex compliant dyes. Beautifully processed with care in a family-run mill this fiber requires no additional preparation and therefore no waste as you work with it.
Fibers have a staple length of approximately 4.25" and are 27-30 microns.
Available by the ounce or pound, no fiber stash is complete without a selection of this versatile wool!
