Pretty in Pink carded wool to handspin or felt - sustainably raised


A rosy blend of fibers carded into a cloud for hand spinning an artful yarn. This blend will also work well in felting projects.

This current carded wool color blend contains Bluefaced Leicester wool from our flock, Border Leicester wool from Marsh Creek Crossing, fine grade Alpaca and firestar.

Opalescence is made by feeding washed wool (and other fibers) into a carding mill that opens up the locks, removes vegetable matter and passes it through several carding rollers that card the fibers but does not align the fibers parallel as in combed top. The wool you spin directly from this cloud preparation can be spun in a woolen or semi-worsted style. Spinners familiar with commercial combed top, which can be dense and require significant predrafting, will likely find this carded preparation easier to spin. The fibers are picked and carded (no pin drafting) to help retain the unique characteristics of each fiber.

The animals whose fibers are in this blend were raised by shepherd's dedicated to the fiber arts and to their fiber animals.
All of the fibers have been carefully sheared, washed, dyed and carded using ecologically safe soaps and dyes.

Handwashable - Local wool!
