Ashford English Leicester Locks

Ashford English Leicester Locks

from 14.00

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

Ideas for Use:
- Separate into individual groups of color.
- Spinning - Open the fiber out and spin a soft single thread. Ply with a fine cotton, silk or commercial woolen thread to strengthen the yarn for knitting. The fine thread will be almost hidden in the yarn and won't obscure the fabulous colors.
- 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 colored staples as surface decoration. They look fantastic lightly felted into the surface of a natural color felt.
