Louet Dyed Corriedale Top

Louet's Corriedale Top is offered in natural white and a variety of dyed shades. It is a great fiber for felting and spinning with a 28 micron count. Corriedale, a medium wool, is often chosen by spinning teachers as an introductory fiber. Corriedale drafts easily and can be spun for almost any purpose. Great for hats, mittens, sweaters, many people find it to be next-to-skin soft. The combed preparation of this fiber makes it ideal for spinning smooth, even yarns, but its versatile nature gives the spinner almost unlimited options. Corriedale Top is also wonderful for felting, and is easy to dye with acid dyes. Spin it by tearing off chunks and drafting, or tearing it lengthwise into strips before spinning.
Packaged in 1/2lb (8oz) bags.

              I just learned how to spin, and I was looking for a good fiber to practice with. This was perfect! The Corriedale wool is a good balance between staple length and micron count, so it spins up easily, but is not terribly scratchy. And, the 1/2 lb. bag gives you plenty of fiber to play around with.

                    I bought the undyed top and dyed it myself. It takes the dye wonderfully and the colors are beautiful and vivid. The spinning was so easy I was sure I was doing something wrong, but I wasn't. I spun the most beautiful and even singles I have ever attempted, plied them, and then used them to make a beautiful scarf. No one can believe it's handspun by a beginner, but it is, and I couldn't be happier or prouder.

                          The product is beautiful. I enjoy spinning with it. But the color I ordered was silver grey, and what I got was light blue. The color did not match anything in the catalog, so I'm not sure if the picture is wrong, or I got the wrong product. I'm keeping it because I still like the color. I'm just disappointed that it does not match what I thought I would be getting.

                                This Fiber benefits from being split horizontally and a bit of pre-drafting.

                                    I ply this with some fine contrasting colors to use for knitting hats, cowls, scarves and fingerless mitts.
