Item details

Colorway: Pound It Out Your Porthole!
Fiber/Blend: 21 um Merino
Quantity: 4 oz

Here is a 4 oz quantity of 21 um Merino top that is so soft and lovely to spin. We dyed these with deep purples, medium blues, and a bit of hot fuschia to make it pop. Merino is one of the finest natural fibers available for the hand-spinner and felter. Merino makes a wonderfully warm and soft yarn that can be used in a variety of crafts including knitting and weaving, among many others.

We hand dye, in small batches, either via steaming, or in a dye pot, almost all of the fibers we work with. We do purchase, on occasion, dyed firestar. I prefer to use my own color concoctions in order to give you, the fiber artist, the most beautiful and unique colors to work with, and probably ~99% of what we use is hand dyed by us.

We love what we do, and truly hope you enjoy what we produce.

With every item purchased from our shop, you will receive a raffle ticket. This raffle ticket will allow you to enter the boffo fibers bimonthly drawing for a free braid or batt. All you have to do is take a picture of your purchase(s) along with the raffle ticket(s), so that I can see the numbers of course, and post it on "Quarterly Raffle" thread in the Ravelry group. We'll put those tickets that are posted into the list for the RNG. That's it! Of course we'd also love for you to stay around and chat a bit in the group, if you're so inclined.

We make every effort to ensure that the pictures we post are as true to the actual color as possible, however, all photos are stock photos, and there may be slight differences in appearance. We do take detailed notes of every color way that is created so that it will be reproducible. If you would like us to dye additional braids/batts for a particular project you'd like to do, and there aren't enough in the shop, please message me and we'll do our best to accommodate your needs.

We also do our best to make sure all residual dyes are rinsed thoroughly from each braid, but there may still be slight bleeding of the color upon washing due to differences in water composition from place to place.

We dye and blend all of our products in a smoke free, cat friendly house. We do our best, however, to keep the kitties away from the fibers.

If, for any reason, you are not happy with your purchase, please let us know and we'll do our best to make sure that we remedy the issue and make you as happy as possible.
