Pumpkin Spice - Carded wool for hand spinning, felting, crafts


This pumpkin colored blend of Border Leicester long wool, BFL, Cormo wool and fine grade Alpaca is carded into a cloud for hand spinning an artful yarn. This blend will also work well in felting projects.
There are hints of golden brown and red coral that stand out in this mostly orange blend.

You are purchasing 4 oz. of carded fiber to spin into your own yarn. Treat yourself...

Pumpkin Spice carded wool blend is featured in a project article in the Fall 2023 issue of Spin•Off magazine as 'Once Upon an October Pumpkin Scarf'. Please check it out at Long Thread Media - you may also view it on Ravelry.

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 airy 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.
