Perfect for colourwork, you should be able to spin at least 30 yards of fingering weight from each colour of fibre, perfect for a sheepy themed headcovering.
These colours have been selected to provide as much contrast as possible, and are all British Wool.
Contains 15 g each of
- 3 shades of British Shetland
- 3 shades of British BFL (Blue Faced Leicester)
- 2 shades of North Ronaldsay
- 1 shade of British Masham
Each comes individually packaged, and labelled so you can identify which fibre you're spinning.
Everything except the North Ronaldsay fibre is commercially prepped tops (commonly called roving). The North Ronaldsay is a true roving, the fibres are slightly more jumbled up, and the strip of fibre is thinner.
For more information about each type of wool, or for larger quantities of some of the fibres you can have a look at my Best of British shop section-
The final pictures are the mini skeins you will spin up from this selection of fibres, and a hat that I knitted using the spun yarn (Kate Davies Sheep Heid, not my pattern, but available to purchase from her website)
