From inky depths to a few starry white spots, this hand-dyed interpretation of the Cosmic Cliffs formation in the Carina Nebula was inspired by the newest space photography of the Webb Telescope. The primary tones are a deep cobalt and a warm copper, and the blending of dyes, tricks of heat and acid, and unique interactions of each fiber add exciting new undertones, highlights, and complements in every color for a truly cosmic finish.
Combed top, sometimes referred to as wool roving, is a commercially prepared fiber for spinning yarn and other wool crafts such as felting. Ours is carefully selected, hand-painted, and packed with care for you to spark your own creativity. This listing is for one 4oz braid of top.
Polwarth wool was developed from Merino sheep with an addition of Lincoln ancestry. It retains much of Merino's softness and crimp, and gains length and drape from its longwool side. Polwarth is moderately resistant to felting and pilling, and when spun, creates yarn with next-to-skin softness, surprising loft, and enough durability for outdoor activity.
