This special UK sourced breed sampler was put together for the 2018 Black Sheep Gathering. Grab one of the remaining sets to sample a few different wools that you may not see much of here in the US and do some comparisons. These fibers were milled by John Arbon Textiles, a small family-run mill in the UK that I had the pleasure of supporting by bringing some of their tops here for spinners to sample.
Each UK Breeds Chemistry Set totals at least 4 ounces (1 ounce of 4 different breeds). Most of these fibers are what I would consider medium softness-- probably not next to skin soft, but wonderful for slippers, mittens, outerwear, felting, and similar things. The Corriedale is the softest of the four, and one of the softest examples of Corriedale I've encountered.
If you find you love one of the four in particular, I have limited amounts of 4oz braids of these natural fibers-- check the Undyed Fibers section under the Fiber menu!
Fibers included in this set:
Exmoor Blueface (white)
Zwartbles/Exmoor Blueface (dark brown/white mix)
I only include pictures that I think accurately represent the colors of the fiber, but differences in computer monitors mean my photos may not be 100% accurate. I accept returns of items in original condition within 30 days of purchase; see the Shipping & Returns page for more information.
My top goal here at Elemental Fiberworks is to provide an fun and geeky spinning experience that you'll enjoy every minute of!
