Please Note: This wool has a natural texture. It is NOT superwash wool and is therefore not as soft as superwash wools can be. (Superwash wool is softer because the wool has been placed in an acid bath to remove the 'scales' from the fibre. It is then coated with a polymer which means the wool can be machine washed without shrinking. The texture of this 100% British Sheep Wool is much more natural; it still has its scales as it hasn't been treated with acid nor coated with polymer; much kinder to the environment!
Aftercare: To avoid shrinking, handwash gently in cool water. Re-shape while damp and dry flat away from direct heat. Do not tumble dry. Very, very cool iron if needed. (It felts beautifully! To felt, knit on larger needles and wash at 60 degrees in machine with a couple of old towels).
I have tried to show the colour, texture and thickness as accurately as possible in the photos. It looks accurate on my screen, but all screens vary. I am happy to send a short length of any of my wools/yarns as a sample so that you can see the colour, texture and thickness before you decide. Just send me a SAE and let me know which yarns you would like a sample of. If you have any questions please contact me: [email protected]
