Songs of the River - Gradient Colorway
Merino Wool Top - natural color, staple length averages 75-80 mm, micron is 25. This Merino is from South Africa (Cape) or South America depending on availability and is from non-mulsed sheep.
Stellina - Stellina is a fairly new fibre made from polyester and nylon. Very similar to Angelina fiber.
DYES: This combed top may retain some residual color from the dyeing process. Washing will not affect the level of color in your fiber. Since heavy metals are not used in these dyes some colors such as pink and turquoise may run slightly when washed. This is not a matter of too much dye being used. I recommend washing all hand dyed items separately.
WASHING: For washing this fiber please use room temperature water. Please do NOT agitate which can and will felt wool. You may use a wool wash if you wish. Hot water is NOT recommended at all!
PHOTOGRAPHS: All photographs have been done with a iphone and an Ott light. PLEASE NOTE - that I have NO control over the differences from color monitor to color monitor or the brightness of your lighting in your computer.
STORAGE: All fiber is braided and sealed in plastic. This is great for saving space and for easy transport. If you are going to store your fiber, store it loosely and allow it to breathe. Otherwise wool can compress and even felt if left sealed in plastic. It is best to store away from heat, sunlight, and moisture.
