Dark brown, nearly black solid Shetland combed top alongside the wispy, soft gray Tussah Silk and Shetland combed top resemble birch bark in a quiet forest. Each combed top weighs 28 grams (1 ounce) for a total of 57 grams (2 ounces) to give a lovely accent to other spinning fibres. Using the two separately with a coloured roving will create a beautiful colour palette with a complimentary fade.
Combed wool top is procesed fine wool in which the fibres are combed in a parallel direction resulting in a finished, smooth top, free of noils or shorter fibres. This helps make your spinning faster and rather effortless, with the ability to produce a finer, thinner yarn.
We select the finest combinations of luxuriously soft combed tops to create a one-of-a-kind Spinning Bundle. Used on its own, this bundle will yield a 2 ounce skein of yarn. Together with a Wool Batt or Naturally Dyed Roving, the possible combinations are endless.
Fibres ~ Shetland and undyed Zwartbles
Colour ~ Birch Bark

Gently hand wash once the fibres have been made into yarn or felted, and then wash in lukewarm water and lay flat to dry, out of direct sunlight.
Enjoy using Wool Maiden's Spinning Bundles for your spinning or felting project. We hope that the garment you create brings great joy and perhaps becomes an heirloom piece in your wardrobe.
