Corriedale wool has a defined, even crimp and is smooth and easy to spin or felt. You can spin a fine to medium woollen, worsted or semi-worsted yarn. Corriedale will bulk after washing and has good elasticity. It is ideal for baby wear, woven, knitted, crocheted or felted garments. It has a micron count of 27-30, and the staple length is around 11cm / 4.25".
Ashford wool sliver is 100% pure New Zealand wool, and is grown on sheep farms in the South Island of New Zealand where the sheep graze on large grassy paddocks and are free from mulesing. The only wool selected for this roving is free from breaks, has high bulk, brightness, low vegetable matter and is the correct micron. The wool is washed using a standard aqueous treatment with eco-friendly biodegradable detergent, and dyed using ecologically-safe Oeko-Tex compliant dyes (detailed information can be found here).
