An excellent fiber for wet felting and nuno felting. Minute amounts of this fine fiber are useful in needle felting tiny areas, eyes for example. The wool is close-to-the-skin soft. Spin a fine woollen yarn using the long draw method or a worsted yarn using a short draw. Merino yarn is ideal for fine knitting, crochet and lacework. Micron ~22, Staple length approx. 7.5cm (3ins). One ounce is approximately 60" long and about 3" in diameter when not compressed.
The Merino Wool Top we sell is ethically produced and originates from South Africa. The sheep are well-cared for, sheared humanely and are not mulesed.
Available individually by the ounce which measures approximately 5 feet.
It can be expensive to ship an order with large amounts of fiber. If additional funds are required, we will contact you.
