20g bumps are popular with needle felters as smaller bits of many colours make for more dynamic landscapes and sculptures whether painting with wool or creating something cute to cuddle.
100g bumps are popular with wet felters and especially spinners as 100g makes enough yarn for a pair of mitts or a pair of socks. Winter is coming - bring on the big bumps for cozy fingers and toes.
With a defined and even crimp, it is smooth and easy to spin and felt. It is perfect for beginning to needle felt as the fibres and long and thick and join together with ease.
Spinning it into a fine to medium woolen, worsted or semi-worsted yarn. Corriedale will bulk after washing and has good elasticity. It is ideal for baby wear, woven, knitted or crocheted garments.
Ashford Corriedale sliver is a 100% New Zealand product with wool from pasture-fed sheep. Many of the farmers have farmed the same land for generations and take great pride in the quality of their wool and the high standard of animal husbandry. The sheep are well cared for and are not mulesed.
During processing the wool is washed with an environmentally-friendly, biodegradable detergent. The wool is then dried and dyed. The dyes comply with the strict EU regulations and can be made certified under the Oeko-Tex Standard 100, a standard ensuring they are ecologically-safe products.
