Key Lime - Opalescence wool spinning/felting blend, 4 ounces - wool, mohair, alpaca, firestar - it's all about hand spinning yarn


$18.00

This listing is for one, 4 ounce bag of Key Lime, Opalescence, a carded blend of fibers for hand spinning an art yarn. 

This soft and pastel combination of BFL wool, Cormo wool, fine grade alpaca, kid mohair, firestar and glitz spins/felts into a rich key lime colorway with plenty of contrasting surprises!

Spinners accustomed to commercial combed top, which can be dense and require significant predrafting, will likely find this carded preparation easy to spin. Opalescence is made by feeding washed wool(and other fibers) into a carding mill that opens up the locks, removes vegetable matter and passes it through several carding rollers that card/comb the fibers but does not align the fibers parallel as in combed top. The wool you spin directly from this cloud will make a beautiful woolen yarn the same as is spun from wool roving or batts.
All animal fibers contained in this blend are sustainably raised by local shepherds, washed with mild, eco friendly soaps, dyed with protein fiber dyes and carded into a beautiful blend at Dakota Carding & Wool Co. 

The neck scarf was created using the key lime blend and is not part of this sale.
