A unique carded preparation for hand spinning or felting. All colors in this blend are natural colors derived from indigo plant dye & gray wool. This listing is 4 ounces of carded blue & gray tones with textures and character. This blend will produce a lofty, durable yarn and/or beautiful felted fabric.
Corriedale wool locks raised by a regional shepherd are dyed using natural indigo plant dye. These beautiful blue locks are then hand blended and carded together with a natural grey Cormo wool fleece.
Our carding mill opens up the locks and cards the fibers into a fluffy cloud which will spin a lofty woolen yarn. This preparation works well for felting also. Spinners accustomed to commercial combed top, which can be dense and require significant predrafting, will likely find this carded preparation easier to spin. The fibers are processed gently to help retain the unique characteristics of each fiber.
Long healthy locks (3-4 inches) sustainably raised.
Please remember that colors may appear different on your monitor than in real life. Every effort has been made to convey the colors in my photos as the fiber blend appears to me in person. Photos are taken in natural daylight without any color effects. I card many pounds of this fiber blend colorway variation between batches will exist; similar to different dye lots of yarn.
