These super-soft and silky locks measure between 6"-9", and came from a lamb Teeswater fleece, grown in Northern Ireland.
Lovely bright sunshine yellow/orange dyed with Coreopsis flowers grown in my garden, and over-dip-dyed with a light solution of indigo which gives sage/grass green tips. Monitors will vary, but mine is not really showing up the brightness of the yellow/orange of these locks. This listing will blend well with crottle lichen merino or shetland tops, or coreopsis merino tops, and onion skin merion tops in my shop.
I try to include in each 10g pack locks varying from 6-9"
After the process of hand-selecting fleece from breeders, these locks had to first go through a mordant process and then the plant-dye had to be extracted, and the locks dyed before being dip-dyed with indigo which has all been quite fiddly and time consuming, but I think the resulst are worth it.
Sold in cellaphane envelopes, tied with cloth ribbon.
