Norwegian – Black (Top)
Norwegian – Black (Top)
Classification: DUAL-COATED Nice and clean combed top. Norwegian sheep come in a range of tones, this top being a very dark brown with traces of grey hairs combed through. Like Icelandic, this is best used for rugged outerwear. Micron count is hard to determine on double-coated blends. The staple length for this top is 4 to 6 inches. We can't find information on the felting properties, but since Icelandic felts so well there may be possibilities with Norwegian.

Romney – Medium Grey (Roving)
Romney – Medium Grey (Roving)
Classification: LONGWOOL Clean, carded and somewhat chunky roving with very little vegetation. Medium grey-brown in tone, liberally sprinkled throughout with ash grey. Romney is a longwool with a good crimp and relatively short staple and slight sheen. It spins well either woolen or semi-worsted styles. Suitable for midrange to outerwear. Being roving this has excellent loft which many needle felters love. Micron count on this fibre is around 36 (but it feels softer) with a staple length of 4 to 5 inches. Felting properties are very good. PRODUCT of NEW ZEALAND

Sari Silk Fibre – Cool Tones
Sari Silk Fibre – Cool Tones
Shredded sari silk fibre, in a myriad of cool colours colours that may include some or all of purple, blue, lime, emerald, other green shades, turquoise, grey, silver and possibly a few threads of red, yellow or other tones. This is shredded from leftover scraps and mill ends of fabric used to make saris. Our new supply is very clean and for the most part free of unshredded bits and debris. Fibres are in a tangle, essentially, but we try to get a good mix in each bag. What to do with it? We've sometimes cut it into shorter lengths and carded it into spinning/felting batts; the key is to cut the silk to about the same length as the staple of the fibre it's being blended with. On the drum carder we find it behaves best when layed on the intake tray with the wool fibre on top, which helps to keep the silk off of the licker-in drum. Felters love to use these fibres for embellishment in wet, Nuno and needle felting projects. Apparently it's a very cool add-in for paper makers, particularly those doing silk paper. Should also be grand for silk fusion and a myriad of other crafts, and even fly fishermen love this stuff! PRODUCT of INDIA

Shetland – Grey, Fine (Top)
Shetland – Grey, Fine (Top)
Classification: DOWN-TYPE WOOL Very clean combed top with next to no veg. The colour is a blend of soft ash-grey and deeper charcoal, likely to make a beautiful heathered yarn. It has a lovely soft handle. This is a very old breed used in everything from traditional Shetland lace to rugged tweed fabrics and midrange to rugged outerwear knitted garments. It technically has a double coat but they are nearly always carded together. Micron count on the fine hairs varies from 12 to 20 microns but is difficult to assign in a blend. Staple length is in the 2 to 4.5 inch range. Felting properties are moderate. PRODUCT of GREAT BRITAIN

Yak, Brown 50/Cultivated Silk 50
50% Yak / 50% Cultivated Silk Absolute luxury best describes this exotic blend from Ashland Bay. The combination of the two fibres somehow gives an almost metallic appearance, better than either alone! This would overdye like a dream, if you dare. The colour is sort of silvery brown but streaky at the same time. We think this wants to be spun lace weight but no doubt it would make superb bulkier yarns as well. Clean combed top, and easy to spin. PRODUCT of UNITED KINGDOM
