Hand dyed BFL Combed Top.

Blue Faced Leicester fleece from Devon based flocks, specially sorted and graded in the South Molton wool depot, then re-graded by Wool Tops to remove a further 20% of kemp and inferior quality fibres. The remaining fibre was scoured, then combed at John Arbons mill in Devon to make a 26 micron top that is magical stuff. 

 

I've dyed this fibre in to rainbow packs, each pack contains 6 x 20g pieces of combed top. How you use it is up to you!

Make mini skeins of each colour...

Get the carders out and make your own gradient...

Use the colours on Blending Boards and Drum Carders...

Or in Felt Making as a fantastic British alternative to Merino...

The possibilities are endless!


Hand dyed by me in my home in the Welsh hills using acid dyes, these give strong, long lasting colours. (The intense shades of these packs may lead to some crocking. They have been dyed to exhaustion, and then rinsed in hot water and detergent, however different water supplies and detergents cause unpredictable things to happen to hand dyed fibre. I recommend rinsing separate skeins before use in a project, and would advise against using no-rinse detergents such as Soak and Euclan as they seem most prone to causing bleeding)
