Washed English Leicester


SKU: N/A Categories: , Tags: , , ,


Micron 38-40, Staple length approx. 17.5cm (7ins), washed
A beautiful high lustre wool with a well defined crimp ideal for medium to thick yarns.

Ideas for Use:

  • Separate into individual groups of colour.
  • Spinning – Open the fibre out and spin a soft single thread. Ply with a fine cotton, silk or commercial woollen thread to strengthen the yarn for knitting. The fine thread will be almost hidden in the yarn and won’t obscure the fabulous colours.
  • Weaving – Use the beautiful shiney staples for extra texture in handwoven fabrics. Handknot the staples into beautiful rugs or wall hangings.
  • Felting – Use the coloured staples as surface decoration. They look fantastic lightly felted into the surface of a natural colour felt.
