Coloured Ryeland - Dark or Light natural tops - ideal for wrapping wire armature, various weights
We love the Ryeland, its great as a core wool and to wrap around wire armature. The coloured Ryeland is slightly more 'hairy' than our White Ryeland but still a lovely wool for wrapping armature. Whilst it is a roving it feels more like a wool batt as the fibres are very lofty and springy and easy to needle felt.
Dark is a dark brown with lighter fibres giving a variegated effect.
Light is a lovely grey brown, ideal for badgers, old man beards, etc
This wool is from Leominster, home of the Ryelands! Wools of this type in our local wool range in a similar preparation are:
