Ryeland - local natural tops - ideal for wrapping wire armature, various weights
Ryeland local natural tops
We love the Ryeland, its great as a core wool and to wrap around wire 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. The colour is a natural off white.
This wool is from a lovely farmer local to us, we have even met some of the sheep! Click here to see the sheep: https://www.haileyfarmlamb.co.uk/about-us
Wools of this type in our local wool range in a similar preparation are:
- Ryeland (Very crimped, great for wrapping armature, velcro like quality)
- Ryeland Lamb (Finer fibres, very crimped, great for wrapping armature and making mice!)
- Texel X Lamb (Longer whiter fibres, slightly flatter than Ryeland)
- North Country Mule (Longer flatter fibres but still lots of body)
