Exquisite, fine wool quality.
This carded and combed virgin wool is perfect for wet and needle felting, spinning , giant knitting and making airy figurines like angels and fairies.
This wool is great for working with children and is often preferred in schools.
Take a look at the rest of our carefully dyed 57 wonderful solid colors, fine 27 mic.
Although most people would call this a roving, it is in fact called Top.
The difference is the process it has gone through and the purpose it serves.
A Top has been carded and then combed to make all the fibers smooth and parallel. Wool Top is perfect for worsted or semi worsted spinning.
A Roving on the other hand has been taken from a carded batt (a blanket of interlocked and naturally crimped fiber) and not combed, and then pulled through a small hole in order to make a long continuous cord. A Roving is best for woolen spinning.
I have been really enjoying working with the rich jewel tone wool I picked up last summer - this pop of yellow in particular is just perfect. Soft, easy to work with, and pairs perfectly with the rest of the palette in this collection to make textile works of art.
