I love all things earthy and primitive and in its natural state and that is what my shop is full of. It was time to add something soft and shiny! This is 16 micron, white extra-fine merino wool that originated in Australia and I have bundled it by the 2oz.
It is perfect for nuno felting, wet felting, carding into pelts to add sheen for needle felted sculpture and for spinning.
Fiber is commercially prepared so is uber clean and free of vm. Staple length looks to be around 5 inches (2 oz bundles are lying next to a ruler to give you an idea of how big the bundle is) and is definitely next to skin soft and will take dye beautifully.
The company that produces this sliver is certified by the International Oeko-Tex Association to be eco- friendly.
