Natural grizzled black Rambouillette - Clun Forest cross wool spinning fiber top! This fiber is a natural grizzled black. The raw fibers were cleaned and processed at a custom mill into spinning top so there has been minimal processing and no harsh chemicals used.
This fiber is pretty clean with only the odd small bits of tiny veg matter. I have spun up quite a bit of this myself and I don't have to pre-draft it at all. The staple is long and the natural crimp means it clings to itself in a way that makes it super easy to spin fine!

The Clun Forest breed is known for it's natural dark fleeces and high crimp. Rambouillette is known for it's fine soft fiber. This cross breed has produced a finer fleece than the standard Clun Forest but has maintained the high crimp and natural dark color. This top is MUCH softer than any Romney I've ever spun so I would not hesitate to spin it for a vest or light cardigan, mitts or a hat. I am currently spinning some up for a lace shawl because it has such a wild lustrous look. This very crimpy fiber clings to itself so it can be spun fine but impart extra warmth to whatever you make with it.
On a scale of 1 to 10 with 1 being potscrubbers and 10 being a baby's bottom this fibers is a 6-7 with a very silky sheen.
This fiber will felt and can also be dyed but expect slight color variations because it's natural color is dark. Hand wash in lukewarm. Lay flat to dry.
This listing is for a strip of spinning top with a total weight of 4.6 ounces.
