Our 100g bumps of 100% Canadian COLOURFUL wool batting is a combination of Merino and Rambouillet fleece.
It's super soft and perfect for wet felting. Many felters we know love how easily it felts with very little effort.
Wool batting makes an excellent core material when needle felting, too. Instead of using Corriedale or Merino all the way through, make a tight ball or cover a skeleton with batting first.
Waldorf doll makers and stuffed toy makers love the all-natural goodness and softness of the batting for making their creations.
And if you know a gnome who needs a beard - here you go!
A 12-inch toy needs ~100g.
An 18-inch Waldorf doll needs ~250g.
A 20-inch x15-inch felted wallhanging needs ~200g.
Canadian wool is noticeably different than other wool as our sheep live in extreme temperatures and so their wool is loftier (more fluffy and bulky) and often of better quality than other wools.
We're so happy to support local, sustainable, craft suppliers and the artisans and farmers who produce them.
