While every effort is made to show you the true color of each wool sample, there may be some variation due to the quality of the photo and the coloring through your computer monitor. In order to help you choose your colors I have added a brief description beside each one.

NOTE: Photo four has Black, Turquoise and the new color Fluoro Blue (#47 on the color list). I have included Turquoise to show you the difference in color between that and Fluoro Blue. Fluoro Blue is a beautful bright blue, slightly lighter than Turquoise, the same color that is so popular in many of our modern clothes, very beautiful. I am so excited to stock it and am sure it will make a lovely addition to the range of colors I offer.

White corriedale wool is great for dyeing if you prefer to personalise your creations even further. I have tried dyeing it and achieved some nice soft teddy golds and browns.

Living in New Zealand, I have direct access to our top quality NZ Corriedale wool sliver (roving)from Ashfords. My wool is all 100% pure New Zealand wool.

Ashfords wool fiber comes in a wide range of vibrant, exciting colors, from white and light brown, to beautiful blues, lavenders, pinks, green and yellow, with no flecks or marling.

This wool is 27-30 micron, with 4.5 inch staple length, and is my favorite fiber for needle felting. Because of its slight crimp, it felts up fast and as it is inexpensive, I use it all the way through my creations, so the color on the outside is the colour on the inside. I don't need to use a core wool and then 'skin' over the outside with my chosen colors.

This is 100% NZ wool, from pasture fed sheep living in our NZ high country sheep stations. The sheep are well cared for and are not mulesed,

The wool is processed at Ashfords boutique NZ mill. The dyes used comply with the strict EU regulations and projects made from the sliver can be certified under the Oeko-Tex Standard 100. This standard is the most widely known standard for certification of ecologically-safe projects and clothing.
