SALE! Wensleydale Wool top - 'Deep Sea Diving'


We are closed until January 2021 for Maternity Leave and won’t be processing orders during this time. In the meanwhile, you are welcome to browse the shop and we look forward to seeing you again in 2021.

SALE! This fibre is a bit compacted after being on my stall at a wool show.  It's still perfectly useable, and will open out with a bit of teasing, but it's probably best suited to felting rather than hand spinning.

100 grams (3.5oz) Wensleydale combed wool top.  Wensleydale has a long staple (typically 10-15cm in this top), and a relatively coarse fibre diameter (compared with merino). Beautifully lustrous, which gives the colours a rich, almost glowing appearance. Because of the long staple length, it's best for spinners with some experience. Not as fine as BFL or Shetland wools, but still a lovely spin.
