Nearly as soft as cashmere, but without the price tag, and with a longer staple length making it easier to spin. This is 14.5 micron Merino, from non-mulsed sheep.
3 x 100g (3.5oz) braids of combed top.
These fibres would work fabulously for many of the larger shawl patterns currently being published. Make your own gradient, fade, or ply the 3 colours together to create a beautifully variegated skein.
These fibres are commercially dyed in a solid colour to Okeo-Tex 100 standard. This environmental certification verifies the methods used are environmentally friendly, and the dyed used are safe for human health.
I then hand dyed the fibre in my home in the Welsh hills using acid dyes. These dyes give safe, long lasting colour.
