Hand painted roving, Charollais combed top, fibre for spinning or felting
Charollais is a wool breed in my shop, having spun it myself on both spindle and wheels I am happy to include it. It's a really nice squishy, bouncy wool. I very like English Southdown it’s a short staple Down breed wool, great for socks but my hand spun hat is doing a great job in keeping me warm too.
Originally from East central France these sheep are being seen more and more in the U.K. now.
Colour - Jewel
This dyeing technique does not spin to a striped or regular colour repeat. I live it for that it creates gorgeous effects.
I take photos with care but please remember they may appear different on your screen.
We are a cat friendly non smoking home. Neither Ella or Elsie, our cats are allowed near fibre or yarns.
