Superwash Merino 50/Tencel 50 (Top)
$5.00 – $38.59
Lovely and clean combed top. Staple length around 4 to 5 inches, the colour is a streaky blend of ivory and 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 Tencel. Suitable for a wide range of yarns.
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.
