This wool noil is dyed in subtle shades of grayish purple and grayish blue. It's called storm cloud. It really looks like storm clouds.... Have you ever used wool noil. It's similar to silk noil with a matte cloud like finish. As with silk noil, a little goes a long way. ( Not if you're a noil addict like me...). Use this amazingly soft product for awesome effects in art batts, rolags, hand pulled rovings, and textured art yarns. Try it in felting projects and many other crafts. Smoke free pet free home.
