"Andean Mountain Wool" Spinning Fibre/Fiber ~100g - AM07/05
~ 100g braid of bouncy soft 100% Andean Mountain wool - something new for BarberBlackSheep!
This is a variegated over-dye technique which allows some of the natural charcoal colour base to show through in places to create a subtle, heathered yarn.
The bouncy ~26 micron wool is well suited to spinning slightly thicker yarns, great for those who struggle to achieve this with other fibres. It is slightly more crisp than other fine wools (such as the similar micron count BFL) and is slightly more like a crimpy breed such as a fine Corriedale - which is suspect it has a lot of in this breed - and Superfine Shetland. This bouncy wool is really easy to spin using a light touch to draft making for a fast, fun spin. This is a more matt wool which has contributed to beautiful saturated colours.
Each braid weighs approximately 100g (individual braids may vary by a couple of grams each way after dyeing and rinsing)
Hand dyed with non-toxic acid dyes.
This wool is a natural protein fibres and can felt if not washed with care. Cool hand wash with a suitable detergent for wool/delicate items.
