Earth Day - biotayarns carded color wool blend


A deep, rich color blend in blues and greens; the verdant colors of our earth.

This carded color blend is made from Long, soft locks of Border Leicester wool, Bluefaced Leicester wool and Alpaca.

Biotayarns carded wool blends 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 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 or carbonization) to help retain the unique characteristics of each fiber.

We support local shepherds who are raising sheep for their fiber.
