Dakota Bison - bison fiber and shetland wool carded into a cloud for hand spinning & felting


$34.00

The Dakota Bison carded wool blend is comprised of natural, fawn-colored, Shetland lambswool from the Ewe's have it Farm in MI and Bison down harvested in MT. The bison fibers are sheared from bison who are raised for market. I wash the bison fibers, let them dry and card to remove most of the guard hairs. The natural colored shetland wool locks were gently washed and then hand blended with the natural brown bison down. In the next step, I card the fibers together by feeding them through our industrial carding mill which produces the carded cloud pictured in the photos.

Pure and simple washing and carding of these fibers gives you an easy to draft, airy preparation great for spinning a woolen style yarn.  This wool is meticulously raised for its handspinning quality and carries the shorter bison down in a 50/50 blend of spinning bliss. The wool and bison down are washed with biodegrable soap and carded without chemicals or oils. Gentle processing here at our mill ensures the fibers retain their unique characteristics.
