Undyed Wool Roving Go back

Undyed Wool

Undyed wool from different sheep breeds, in natural white, gray and brown tones. The color, fineness, feltability and other properties of wool vary per sheep breed. And even per herd or per individual sheep. It is often less noticeable with dyed wool, but in addition to these differences, changes in weather conditions, nutrition, care and the moment of shaving can cause (considerable) variations over time. The wool can therefore always feel different or have a different shade. But this is also one of the charms of this beautiful natural product.

Fineness

Depending on the properties, wool types are more or less suitable for needle felting, wet felting, spinning or XXL knitting / crochet. The lower the micron number, the finer the wool. Wool types with a fineness of less than 25 micro ns are suitable for most people to wear on the skin. Thicker wool can itch and is therefore less suitable for some items of clothing. If you use wicked wool to knit large blankets and the like, it is good to know that the finer the wool, the faster it can go pills or fluff
