English Leicester - Natural White
Micron 38-40, Staple length approx. 17.5 cm (7 inches).
A beautiful high lustre wool with a well defined crimp ideal for medium to thick yarns.
Washed. Available in 100 gram bags or 1 kg packs (1kg packs are by special order and require 10-15 days for delivery).
Ideas for Use:
- Separate into individual groups of colour.
- Spinning - Open the fibre out and spin a soft single thread. Ply with a fine cotton, silk or commercial woollen thread to strengthen the yarn for knitting. The fine thread will be almost hidden in the yarn and won't obscure the fabulous colours.
- Weaving - Use the beautiful shiney staples for extra texture in handwoven fabrics. Handknot the staples into beautiful rugs or wall hangings.
- Felting - Use the coloured staples as surface decoration. They look fantastic lightly felted into the surface of a natural colour felt.
*The sheep are well cared for and are not mulesed.
