Which 'White' Wool?
We have many wools which we call 'white' but everybody has a different definition of what this might mean, a natural white being various shades of off-white / cream! The table below will explain the differences between these white wools so that you can choose the right ones for your projects.
|Name||Shade of 'White':||Suitable For:|
|Bleached White Australian Merino Batts||Our whitest white!||A very bright white finish. The bleaching process alters the wool fibres so they do not feel so soft as our other Australian.|
|Shetland Batts||Our second whitest white, quite bright.||Has a mix of coarse and fine fibres, makes a solid core, can be used as a top coat, the coarse fibres give a slightly hairy finish (can be trimmed).|
|Australian Merino Batts||Natural off white, our third whitest white.||Very soft, fairly long-fibred batts. We love it for making our mice!|
|Cape Merino Batts||Natural off white||Very soft, very short-fibred batts. Unsuitable for shaping, great for surface layers, great for a snow like texture.|
|Gotland White Batts||Creamy White||Medium fibres, consistent fibre thickness throughout. Great for core wool and shaping.|
|New Zealand White Batts||Creamy White||27 Micron. The natural version of our dyed Merino Batts.|
