Merino Silk Top 80/20

6.99 8.00

Ready to Spin combed Top.   Sold in 50g (1.75 oz) increments.

Absolutely wonderful handspun, felted or used for blending your one of kind yarn or felt.   Merino is the softest in sheep wool fiber.   The addition of Silk just makes it more luxurious.

The fibers for this product are blended first and then dyed, so the silk is dyed. But since the silk takes dye differently, it gives the top a high luster, two tone depth.  Yum!

This fiber is prepared into a wool top.  The fibers are combed in one direction.    Perfect if handspinning worsted yarns, by spinning off the end, keeping your fibers parallel.  Can be easily spun into a semi worsted (lofty woolen type) yarn over the fold or side of preparation.  If recarded in drum or hand cards will produce a roving for woolen spinning.
