Commercially prepared Southdown top, hand dyed by me using high quality acid dyes in a grey colourway. Southdown is a down-type wool, with a lot of spring and bounce. It's great for spinning into sock yarn, and also works well for sweaters and cardigans. I would personally use it for colourwork over cables or lace. This is one of my favourite fibres to spin, partly because it keeps its spring and loft even when spun using a short forward draw!

100% Southdown fibre - 100g

Please be aware that colours vary between monitors.

Wash resulting yarn/garments by hand to avoid felting.

My home is smoke free, and my cat is kept away from my fibre as much as possible.
