This is a hand dyed French combed top of fine Merino, Bombyxx Silk, and German Angora rabbit. I raised the rabbits myself and I can assure you these animals were combed and sheared with love. The fiber was extremely clean. The silk combination was high grade. The fiber count for the merino is between 21-23 micron. This fiber has luster and spins fine. It dyes well and can be used for felting.
