A wide variety of colour in small amounts, as requested by our local felter community! This box contains both batts/rovings and locks. The majority of the fibre is sheep’s wool with a small amount of brown alpaca making an appearance: all included fibres are suitable for felting.
Each box is unique and the contents will vary, although the goal is to create a similar variety in each box. The picture is an example and the one you receive will be a bit different.
If you want to see them in person, the current batch is in stock at the Thunder Bay Country Market.
Material: The vast majority of the fibre is wool. There is a small amount of alpaca blended into the brown pieces. The wool can be Polypay, Friesen crosses, Cheviot, Border Leicester and Lincoln Longwool.
Source: 100% Ontario fibre from our own sheep flocks (past and present) and previous alpaca herd.
Processing: 100% hand processed. Beverly has washed, dyed and carded the fibre in small batches. A portion of the included fibre are locks which are washed and dyed but not carded.
Weight of Fibre: approximately 4 oz.
Dye: Procion dyes.
Box Size: 9" x 9" x 3"
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 processed in small batches in our on-site wool mill without the use of harsh chemicals.
