Double Carded Cambrian Wool Batts.
Using all the odds and ends of hand dyed fibre I have left from making mixed colour packs of Cambrian wool. These batts have been carded twice for an even spinning experience. The colours in each batt will vary slightly.
Each one weighs a minimum of 40g (0.9oz).
Three colour versions available, select the option you want from the drop down box.
Glas- Blues, Turquoise
Coch- Red, Orange, Brown, Purple
Gwyrdd- Green, Yellow, Brown
These fibres have been hand dyed to exhaust using acid dyes, and then rinsed using hot water and detergent. However, differences in water can sometimes cause odd things to happen to hand dyed fibres. I would recommend washing dark colours separately from the pale colours in the unlikely case that some bleeding does occur.
Cambrian Wool is Welsh wool from farms local to me. The Cambrian Wool CIC (Community Interest Company) selects the finest fleeces from these farms and has them processed, in the UK, in to Combed Top & Worsted Yarns. The sheep are known as Welsh Mules. A Mule is a cross between a native upland sheep, in this case Welsh Mountain, and a Blue Faced Leicester. These sheep produce wool with beautiful sheen, and incredible bounce, and a long staple length.
The Cambrian Mountains are the remote upland area in the centre of Wales.
This stunningly beautiful landscape is one of the our best kept secrets...
