100% virgin South American Merino Wool Top in exquisite, fine 27 mic wool quality.
This carded and combed virgin wool is perfect for:
- wet felting
- needle felting
- giant knitting and
- making airy figurines like angels and fairies.
This wool is great for working with children and is often preferred in schools.
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.
