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.
Rambouillet wool is a French cousin to the Spanish Merino, developed in the late 1700s. Its luxury fineness and incredible elasticity makes for springy, lofty yarn, and the slightly more matte surface takes colors clearly but softly. Rambouillet felts beautifully, and when spun, creates soft yarn with generous loft, and delicate garments appropriate for next-to-skin or baby use.
