We do a lot of fibre processing on-site, including carding and gilling our own blends. "Laps" are the bits of wool that somethings get stuck on rollers,"lapping" around them. When this happens we have to stop the machine and remove the wool, which is placed into a big tub. These laps are technically waste, though in fact they're all perfectly fine, clean, processed bits and bobs of wool. It'd be a horrible shame to just throw them away, not only for the sheep and farmer that took time to create them in the first place, but it's also a great way to get hold of bulk budget blend.
This is a very soft fibre, but with a short staple length. It's a great choice for wet and needle felting, giving a "smooth" finish if using a finer gauge needle.
This is also a great choice as a stuffing wool.
This fibre has a slight texture to it.
