    Frabjous Fibers Hand Dyed Merino Top

    Frabjous Fibers Hand Dyed Merino Top is a gorgeous fiber perfect for spinning or felting! It is dyed in small batches that are heated slowly and handled gently to avoid felting. Frabjous Fibers Hand Dyed Merino is soft, fluffy, and easily draftable. Definitely worth a spin!  Handy dyed in Vermont.

              Comments about Frabjous Fibers Hand Dyed Merino Top:

              I used this wool for wet felting. I was so impressed by the quantity as well as the quality. I have ordered wool from other sources and this is by far the best color selection I have found. I am new to felting and Webs has the most variety I have seen on line .The craft stores I have been to are of a much inferior product and more expensive. When I first received my order I was so happy with the color and amount ,that I rushed to the phone to call customer service to express my satisfaction. I will definitely order again in different colors!

                  This fiber has glorious color and was very well prepped for spinning, needed a minimum of predrafting to loosen it. Very smooth. Made lovely sock weight yarn, high yardage.

                    This is great fiber for spinning! I've spun a gorgeous single that I will combine with a solid cone of Tencel and make a scarf on my loom. Lovely fiber!

                    Comments about Frabjous Fibers Hand Dyed Merino Top:

                    This is not a fiber for a beginner spinner. Because of the nice, tight crimp and short staple, it requires an experienced hand to spin and control. An intermediate spinner will find the challenge of spinning this fiber a delight. Available in drool-inducing colors-I want one of each!! So soft and cuddly-you just want to walk around petting the 4 oz rope before you spin it up.
                    Some areas of darker dyed fiber in the rope that I purchased were a bit "crusty" (the dye itself?) but washed out when I set the yarn. It will relax and "bloom" somewhat when set.

                    Comments about Frabjous Fibers Hand Dyed Merino Top:

                    Fiber was used to spin yarn at an outdoor demonstration of fiber arts. The lovely variations in color were consistently spaced, making a yarn that will be easy to design with. The very light weight fiber made it hard to hold onto in the stiff breeze, (my issue).
