Ashland Bay Multi-Colored Merino Top

Ashland Bay Multi-Colored Merino Top is 100% merino wool, dyed in brilliant colors and blended together into colorways that reflect multiple shades from the smooth-drafting roving. Spinners prize merino wool for creating amazingly springy yarns. Soft, lofty and highly crimped, merino wool is ideal for all kinds of projects, providing an exceptionally fine surface in wet and needle felted projects, high elasticity in garments and next-to-skin softness.

Note: Fiber ordered by the ounce may have its quantity adjusted before shipping to reflect its actual net weight.

      This is rich in color, although a bit darker than I anticipated (I bought English Garden) It spins well and is delightfully soft.

          I spun this into a medium weight yarn for a sweater. I have not knit it up yet, but I cannot wait! The spinning and plying went smoothly. The fiber slipped through my fingers easily. I would definitely buy this again.

            Excellent making thrummed mittens and this yarn was affordable and perfect. The yarn top is super soft and makes the inside of the mitten feel like a little cloud.

                  I purchased this wool to use in thrummed mittens, and it's just wonderful. Warm, fluffy, and soft to the touch - my new mittens are not itchy at all. The only problem is that fondling this wool makes me want to learn to spin, and I simply don't have time or space for that LOL.

                    Ordered two different colors to ply with solid colors I already had. Actual colors were much darker than they appeared on the website. Disappointed that they are so dark, but will probably still work. Haven't spun it yet but expect it to spin well.

                                I was greatly disappointed to find that Webs shortchanged me nearly 2 oz.! Normally I wouldn't weigh my fiber, but I will now. Customer service did send me the difference.

                                    My goal with spinning is to create knitting yarn for hats, fingerless gloves, leg warmers, cowls, scarves, and throws. This top works perfectly for this.

                                    Service and delivery comments:

                                    When I ordered the merino top I also ordered a cone of mohair which I am still waiting for......I know you didn't charge me for it yet but I just wonder what happened. Also, it is helpful to know via email, when a product has been shipped but that step hasn't happened with my recent orders. Your products always arrive in good condition and delivered promptly except for the one instance I describe here. It is such a pleasure to use your website for my yarn and roving shopping.
