This is 1 oz of 21.5 micron merino wool roving. It's great for Nuno Felting, Needle Felting, Wet Felting, Spinning, and other fiber arts.
I've tried to get as close as possible to the true color of the wool, but all computer monitors display color differently. Please keep that in mind when placing your order.
This merino is from Ashford. According to their website, "Merino wool is very soft with a closely spaced crimp. You can spin a fine woollen yarn using the long draw or a worsted yarn using a short draw. Merino is ideal for super fine knitting, crochet and lacework.
Ashford Merino sliver is a 100% New Zealand product with wool from pasture-fed sheep from our high country sheep stations. We know many of the farmers - some of whom have farmed the land for generations. They take great pride in the quality of their wool and the high standard of animal husbandry. The sheep are well cared for and are not mulesed.
After the sheep are shorn, on the farm, the wool is carefully skirted and checked. Only wool that is sound, clean with good fibre length, bulk and colour is selected. It is sent to a boutique New Zealand mill to be dyed, carded and combed.
It is scoured (washed) using an environmentally-friendly, biodegradable detergent . The wool is then dried and dyed. The dyes comply with the strict EU regulations and garments made from the sliver can be certified under the Oeko-Tex Standard 100. This standard is the most widely known standard for certification of ecologically-safe clothing. (Detailed information can be found at www.oekotex.com). The fibre is then gently opened and conditioned. Carding machines align the fibres and remove any foreign matter. It is then gilled and combed."

Very nicely died and still soft. I ordered this wool to replace wool from another shop because their wool was a bit stiff and rough. I'm sure it was the dye they used. This wool is perfect and the indigo is perfect for my plushy's pants...lol.
This will go beautifully with the other shades of blue I have!
The order was fast and exactly what I was expecting. Thank you
