Meet Skippy! Skippy is a Border Leicester and East Friesian cross that was born on a previously owned farm. The current owner sent us Skippy's most recent fleece for processing. We think his fibre is perfect as core wool because it is quite spongy with good bounce.

 

Core Wool in felting is generally used for the insides or base layers of felting projects. For needle felting, you might use core wool to needle felt the basic shape of an animal and then cover it with dyed wool. Core wool might be used for the base layer of a picture, whether it is wet felted or needle felted.

 

Material: 100% Ontario Wool

Wool Breed: Border Leicester x East Friesian

Source: Skippy currently lives on a farm in southern Ontario

Processing: Washed, picked and carded in our wool mill here in Thunder Bay.

Weight: approximately 2 oz.

Please note that small batch processing like this means there will still be a small amount of vegetable matter in the wool. We hope you see the occasional piece of straw as a reminder that your wool has come from a local family farm and that it has been processed in small batches by hand without the use of harsh chemicals.

  • DISCLAIMER

    We do our best to represent colours accurately, however not all screens are calibrated the same and colour may appear differently in person. Please note that small scale processing like this means there will still be a small amount of vegetable matter in the wool (hay or straw bits). While we try our best, it is not possible for it to be 100% removed. We hope you see the occasional piece of straw as a reminder that your wool has come from a local family farm and that it has been hand-processed in small batches in our on-site wool mill without the use of harsh chemicals.
