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.

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.

            I bought this to experience spinning with top vs. roving. It was a beautiful, soft, smooth wool that spun easily and made a lovely yarn.

                Comments about Ashland Bay Multi-Colored Merino Top:

                I haven't spun this yet. It's soft and feels good in my hand. The ball I got has more red in it than I expected, and streaks of white too. I guess with the name amethyst I expected it to be blended more, but it's pretty and maybe drafting it out will even out the overall color more toward purple rather than red, white and blue/purple.

                Service and delivery comments:

                Delivery was prompt and complete. Very happy with the service.

                    I will be using this product for wet felting. I sometimes forget that on my screen it looks lighter but when I receive the product it is usually darker or not as bright as I would like

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