Merino – Superwash White 22mic (Top)
Merino – Superwash White 22mic (Top)
SUPERWASH Merino. Classification: FINE WOOL The most common fibre offered as Superwash, this is lovely combed Merino top in an ivory-white colour. Micron count is 22, which is plenty soft for against the skin wear and a multitude of other uses. Perfect for knitting items that require easy laundering. Wool is conditioned through an enzyme process that strips off the outer scales, which prevents felting. This also makes for a different effect during the dyeing process, because Superwash fibre sucks up the dye quickly. Merino rates high for softness. Staple length is generally 2.5 to 4 inches. The Superwash treatment makes for a slippery feel during spinning when compared to untreated Merino, so it's not necessarily a good choice for beginners. NOTE: Superwash fibre is NOT GOOD FOR FELTING. PRODUCT of NEW ZEALAND

Sock Blend – Superwash BFL/Nylon Top
Sock Blend – Superwash BFL/Nylon Top
80% Superwash Blue-faced Leicester wool / 20% Nylon Not suitable for wet felting!! Very clean combed top. Staple length around 5 to 6 inches. BFL is not as soft as Merino, but has excellent durability in a sock yarn. Spin Off Magazine did a whole sock issue a couple of years ago and BFL was the winner so far as the best choice for spinning your own sock yarn. We have the mill custom-blend this for us, to save you from having to do the tedious job of combining wool and nylon together in a thorough way. This dyes up beautifully, either before or after spinning. The ovory-white colour is also real nice just as it comes. Would also be a good choice for kid's clothing. PRODUCT of CANADA, made from imported fibre.

Sock Blend – Superwash Merino/Nylon Top
Sock Blend – Superwash Merino/Nylon Top
80% Superwash Merino wool / 20% Nylon Very clean combed top. Staple length is around 4 inches. Like our BFL/Nylon blend, we have the mill do this up for us because it's an ideal no-brainer blend for spinning sock yarn. Takes dye beautifully, though the natural creamy-white is also lovely. White nylon is a pain to thoroughly blend into white fibre, so we've already had it done for you. Not suitable for wet felting. PRODUCT of CANADA, made from imported fibre.

Not as close to "Denim Jacket" as it looks, this is a medium-soft blue overlaid with black for a very moody, broody sort of effect. We did it to expand our range of "guy colours" and it's real handsome.

Haven't we all wanted to knit bumblebee socks?? Glowing yellow is combined with black - well, really a deep midnight green but it looks black from 5 feet away. Not self-striping like a wasp, this will more likely pool like the patterning on a fuzzy bumblebee.
