The Corriedale sheep is found on sheep farms all over New Zealand. Its wool has a clear even crimp and is smooth and easy to spin and felt. This beautiful all-purpose fiber is popular for both traditional wet felting as well as dry felting with a needle. Leave unspun and create painted wool pictures or spin into a fine to medium woollen, worsted or semi-worsted yarn. Corriedale will bulk after washing and has good elasticity. Yarn spun from this fiber is ideal for baby wear, woven, knitted or crocheted garments. Micron 27-30, Staple length approx. 11cm (4¼ins)
The sheep are well-cared for, sheared humanely and not mulesed.
Available individually by the ounce which measures approximately 2 yards.
It can be expensive to ship an order with large amounts of fiber. If additional funds are required, we will contact you.

I have been using Ashford Roving for two years now and love it! The colors and textures are beautiful. I use this product to make soft, flowing angles. Each color is spot on compared to the picture online. The price cannot be beat! I do not buy wool from anywhere else.

I'm new to needle felting. I bought 6 1oz. Ashford Roving colors. I gotta say, the colors in the pictures are pretty darn close to what they are in real life. Which was awesome! The price was pretty good too. My order was filled an shipped really quickly as well. I'll definitely be ordering from A Child's Dream again! Thank you!
