Rambouillet, Hand Dyed, Semi-Solid 100g

Hilltop Cloud


Bad things happened during the heat setting of these braids.... Thanks fridge delivery company for delivering the fridge laid flat in the back of a van and then refusing to take it back after we refused delivery. 

Anyway, my week of teeth gnashing frustration is to your advantage because it means I've discounted these braids. They'll spin fine, they're just not as pristine as I expect from my fibre. You'll still be able to spin them, you'll still be able to make lovely yarn, but in all conscience I can't sell them for full price. 

 

Rambouillet produce a wonderful crimpy fibre, but with a more dis-organised crimp, matte appearance, and longer staple than their close relations, the Merino. 

The breed is a very old one, dating back to 1786 when the first Spanish Merino sheep were allowed to leave Spain as a gift to the French King. 

Micron Count 20-23

 

Hand dyed by me in my home in the Welsh hills using acid dyes, these give strong, long lasting colours.

~ 100g (3.5oz)

This fibre is hand dyed in small batches, where more than one braid is available they will have been dyed at the same time, using the same dye stock, but my dyeing technique produces braids with subtle variations, no two braids are ever identical, where multiple braids are available they are shown in the additional photographs.
