A 100gm colour bag of Merino and Silk Blends, suitable for spinning and wet / needle felting.
What are "laps"?
When making blends on our machinery the wool can sometimes get stuck, fall off, or "lap" itself around the drums. These then have to be cleared and are put into a big bag, so making "laps". Essentially they're a by-product, but in reality they're perfectly fine fibres, so it would be crazy to throw them out! Instead we simply throw them all together to create these craft bags.
Designed and made entirely on-site here at Wentworth, our famous Wingham Blends have been a staple for fibre-artists around the world for over 20 years. All the shades are selected from our range of standard dyed Merinos and processed with white Tussah Silk to a 70:30 ratio (approx).
Our favourite way to use these blends is to spin them straight from the top, creating a wonderfully colourful yarn, though they can be carded or felted..... It's entirely up to you!
Please Note: Crafts Packs are put together in batches of 15-20. As such, if you order multiples of the same pack they may contain the same fibres as the rest of that batch.
The shades displayed are to give an idea of the colour range available. Your craft pack will contain 6 different shades, totalling 100gms.
Q: How much of each colour will I get?
A: It will vary a fair bit, but we try to work to 20cm as an average.
Q: Can I choose the colours I get?
A: The colours are picked and packed at random, so we can't pick a particular colour for you.
