Merino accent 24 micron

Merino accent 24 micron top hand painted is 5 grams per meter. In other words, these fibres have wonderful multi-colored hues. It has in a range of shades. Similarly, on the market we call this kind of painted wool space dyed.

One way to make this fibre is to dip it in small jars of liquid pigments of acid dyes. As well, the merino accent is painted by hand with a pipet or a soft brush and the dyes are applied. It’s perfect to add accents to felted landscape projects. Use this type of wool in needle felting and wet felting. Spinners like it to blend soft fine artistic yarns. We invite you to have fun and explore the varied colours to create amazing fibre paintings with our merino accent.

21 micron merino roving

This 21 micron merino roving is possibly the best wool you can find and great for felting, needle felting, spinning and weaving. It is cheaper than the 14 to 19 micron merino.
Generally, merino wool is a very soft, fine wool.
Merino, unlike some other natural fibres, is naturally elastic.
Merino is great for clothing that comes into contact with body sweat. This type of 21 micron merino roving is still soft and can come into contact with skin. It will absorb moisture (up to 30% of its own weight).
27 micron merino wool would feel scratchy on your skin and is used for 3D projects. So 21 micron merino roving is comfortable for clothing. It’s easy to take care of and felts very quickly due to its elasticity.
