This is selected fleece wool that has been washed, it is then carefully sorted, dyed in small batches and then carded. It comes off the carding machinery as a fine web which is collected onto a rotating drum. When taken off the drum this results in a multilayered sheet (batt) of fibres. The carding process untangles and aligns the fibres. For feltmaking and handspinning the batt can be broken into suitable sized pieces.
The Carded Wool Batts are a blend of Scandanavian wools produced to give a consistant quality. Micron count is around 32 to 34 micron. This gives a good hard wearing slightly springy handle to the fibre. Its very good for 3D wet and needle felting. If you need a hard wearing wet felting wool for bags or slippers this will do the job.
Hand spinners will find that a yarn made from this gives a good yarn suitable for harder wearing outer garments.
As this wool is produced from scoured (washed) and carded fleeeces without any other processing it may contain a small amount of vegetable matter.
