When making blends or combing tops on machinery the wools can sometimes get stuck, fall off, or "lap" themselves around the drums. These then have to be cleared and are put into a big bag, so making Laps. We also have lots of odds and ends from making up some of the special blends. At the start and end of a blend things are not always quite right, but still good quality fibres, so these also get added to the laps bin

The wool itself is in perfect condition and suitable for using just like any other of our fibres.

We do card some of them into mixes/blends for sale on our big carder.
The bulk will be dyed fibres, single colours and rainbows, though there may be animal fibres like alpaca or mohair, it's purely the luck of the draw but we do try to ensure that there's a good mix. Most of the fibre are merino or better. As a broad description they are often referred to as Botany wools.
Specific colour shades cannot be requested. Please go to our standard stock range for these.

We do not include any synthetics. Images are for display only. Photo is the open pile of laps.

 

*Is this waste fibre?

Laps are often described as wastes, though the term doesn't really transfer well: When blending hundreds of kilos of fibres at a time, then the 2 foot of wool tops that didn't go through the machinery are waste. It's these bits that are put together to make up the laps, so to a home spinner or felter it's just like getting a mixed bag of wools. It is clean and safe to use just like any of our other fibre.
