Madder Gray Long Wool Blend - Biotayarns Spinner's Web - 4 oz. carded wool blend


A unique carded preparation for hand spinning or felting.  All colors in this blend are natural colors derived from Madder Root plant dye & natural colored gray wool.  This listing is for 4 ounces of carded madder orange & gray tones in a smooth preparation.  This blend will produce a lofty, durable yarn and beautiful felted fabric.

Border Leicester wool locks in natural gray are raised at Marsh Creek farm in MN. The Teeswater fleece raised here on our SD farm is dyed using madder root a natural plant dye (with an alum mordant).  These healthy locks are hand blended and carded together.

Our carding mill opens up the locks and cards the fibers into a fluffy cloud which will spin a lofty woolen yarn. Watch a video of this blend being made here - This carded preparation works well for felting also.

Spinners accustomed to commercial combed top, which can require significant predrafting, will likely find this carded preparation easy to spin.   The fibers are processed gently to help retain the unique characteristics of each fiber.

Long healthy locks sustainably raised in the prairie states.
