WEL100 Washed English Leicester by Ashford
Micron 38-40, Staple length approx. 17.5cm (7ins).
A beautiful high lustre wool with a well defined crimp ideal for medium to thick yarns.
Washed. Available in 100gm bags or 1kg packs.
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 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.
