Carded wool for handspinning or felting, a Dakota blend, Hickory color blend


$22.00

Make the perfect yarn for your project with this carded wool blend. The wool you spin directly from this carded batt will make a beautiful woolen yarn.
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.

Hickory is comprised of marigold plant dyed BFL wool, protein fiber dyed Border Leicester wool, Shetland Katmoget colored wool and silky fawn colored Llama blended and carded together with a touch kid mohair into a handsome treat for your hand spinning experience. Similar to the highlighted hickory blend as reviewed in the Summer 2017 Spin Off magazine.

This listing is for 4 ounces of carded wool in the 'hickory' colorway: dreamy-soft fibers and colors that evoke an autumn setting in golds, browns and rusty orange.

This blend will make an excellent artisan yarn or a felt piece.

The BFL wool in this blend is gently harvested from my flock of sheep raised here at Dakota Carding & Wool farm.  The natural colored Shetland is from Ewes Have It Farm in MI and the Border Leicester Wool is a fleece raised in MN at Marsh Creek Crossing.  All of these animals are pasture raised with no unnecessary medications and all of the fibers are long, healthy and lustrous.

Dakota blends are created at Dakota Carding and Wool Co. in South Dakota 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.

Handwashable.
