English Leicester Curls - Rainbow Dyed

Regular price $7.50
English Leicester Curls - Rainbow Dyed

A beautiful high-lustre wool with a well defined crimp ideal for medium to thick yarns 38-40 microns, with a staple length approximately 17.5cm 

These curls are from sheep that are well cared for and are not mulesed.

Ideas for Use:

* Separate into individual groups of colour.

* 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 shiney staples for extra texture in handwoven fabrics. Handknot 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.
