Superwash Merino 50/Bamboo 50 (Top)
$4.75 – $36.66
50% Superwash Merino / 50% Rayon from Bamboo
Lovely and clean combed top. Staple length around 5 to 6 inches, the colour creamy-white. A favourite of dyers for making fancy hand-painted braids for spinners. This is a very soft and luxurious-feeling blend, carded in a streaky manner that helps to preserve the sheen of the bamboo. Use it to spin everything from against-the-skin garments and beyond. Very pleasant in the hands!
Because only the wool will strike with acid dyes, the effect is exotic and streaky both in the top as well as the finished yarn. The Superwash component makes for absolutely no felting during dyeing, and later during laundering. A tip for dyers: when presoaking and rinsing, keep this top in a mesh lingerie bag to help hold it together.
NOT SUITABLE FOR WET FELTING.
