All our blends use the same 21 micron Merino that can be found in our main colour range. This is a slightly finer grade then you might find elsewhere, as we find it gives the perfect balance between being soft yet hard-wearing.
Step 1: Choose your colours
All of our blends are put together using 5 "strands" of wool, so you can chose any five of our merinos to make your blend.
You don't have to use 5 different colours, you just have to make sure they add up to 5. So, you could have 2 strands of Blue, 2 of Red and 1 White. Or any other combination you like!
Step 2: Choose how many passes you want
We make our blends using 2 passes, meaning it gets 2 runs trough the machinery to help comb the fibres together. The more passes you choose the more blended your final mix will be. If you're unsure then we would suggest 2 passes.
The price for 1 and 2 passes is the same. If you'd like a third pass then there is small surcharge.
1 Pass: This gives a very stripey blend. While the colours are mixed together it is still possible to pull them apart if required.
2 Passes: We use 2 passes for our own blends. This mixes the colours up well into a single strand and still give a nice effect when spun to yarn.
3 Passes: This creates a well blended strand, with the colours mixed in well together. This mixes the colours up well together, giving a nice effect if you're felting.
Step 3: Would you like silk?
If you choose this option then we'll add White Tussah Silk to your blend. It gives a very nice effect and makes your blend that little bit softer.
Step 4: How much would you like?
Once you've made all your choices then the price will be calculated automatically. The price quoted is per 500gms. and include the cost of the fibres and the blending service itself..
