These cute little mini braids of wool roving are perfect for spinning--I've been using my support spindle (a lightweight drop spindle would work great, too) to make handspun squares for my scrap yarn blanket, just to keep things interesting! Try spinning them as singles, 2-ply or chain plied for different effects.
This pack contains one 5-7 g mini braid each of the following sheep breed wools: Corriedale--blue with gold Finnish--light mint with rose Gotland--red with magenta
These small sample braids are also great for: >>>weaving >>>blending and carding >>>thrums (sometimes you just need a little roving) >>>felting (all wools are non-superwash, so they will felt to the degree that each breed felts) >>>breed sampling (there are three different breeds or blends in each pack, except for the all-BFL pack)
I love to play with new wool breeds and blends, so check back often for availability, as I will be adding new fibres! Some of the other breeds that may be included in other snack packs: >>> Blue Faced Leicester (BFL) >>> Cormo >>> Corriedale >>> Cotswold >>> Finnish >>> Gotland >>> 22 micron Merino >>> Perendale >>> Polwarth >>> Rambouillet >>> Romney >>> Shetland >>> Teeswater >>> Untreated Wensleydale >>> 70% BFL/30% Mohair >>> Merino Wool/Tussah Silk/Natural Flax
>>> All non-superwash/untreated fibres!
