Washed English Leicester Fleece

  • 950


Micron 38-40, Staple length approx. 17.5cm (7ins). 

 

A beautiful Natural Coloured  high lustre wool with a well defined crimp ideal for medium to thick yarns. 

Ideas for Use:

 

Spinning - Open the fibre out and spin a soft single thread. Ply with a fine cotton, silk or commercial woollen thread to strengthen the yarn for knitting. The fine thread will be almost hidden in the yarn and won't obscure the fabulous colours.

Weaving - Use the beautiful shiny staples for extra texture in handwoven fabrics. Hand knot the staples into beautiful rugs or wall hangings.

Felting - Use the coloured staples as surface decoration. They look fantastic lightly felted into the surface of a natural colour felt.

 


Available in 100gm or 1kg bags.
