Hickory - Dakota blend, 4 oz. - multi-Fiber Blend for hand spinning, felting, wool crafts


$20.00

As highlighted in the Summer 2017 issue of Spin Off magazine, make the perfect yarn for your knitting project with this blend of fawn colored Shetland wool, marigold plant-dyed Teeswater x Rambouillet locks and dyed BFL wool. Hickory is a dreamy-soft, carded wool blend of fibers and colors that evoke an autumn setting in golds, browns and rusty orange.

This blend is made up of soft, lofty, BFL lambswool, Shetland wool and Rambouillet X wool, all washed with biodegradable soap, dyed with professional protein fiber dyes and carded without chemicals or oils and ready for you to spin. Silk Noil and firestar are carded in for extra texture and shine!

Dakota blends, created at Dakota Carding and Wool Co. in South Dakota are 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 will make a beautiful woolen yarn the same as is spun from wool roving or batts.
Pure and simple washing, dyeing and carding of the fibers gives you an easy to draft, airy preparation great for spinning a woolen or semi-worsted style yarn. The fibers are processed to retain their unique characteristics.
