Wool for felting
We also stock a colourful range of 27micron Corriedale roving. Used for both wet felting and needle felting.
Viscose tops for felting
A relatively new felting product to Australia is viscose fibre for felting. Viscose roving is a plant fibre made from wood pulp and at 19 micron is very compatible with our extra-fine wool roving. As well as coordinating with our wool colours, our viscose fibre is also available in a palette of over 40 colours.Adding viscose during felt making not only adds a wonderful sheen, but also adds strength and reduces pilling. Although a plant fibre, viscose has the same visual characteristics as silk fibre but is much more economical. Unlike silk fibre, viscose is easier to use as there is no static and can be used like silk for other projects too – eg to make ‘silk paper’. Fibre reactive dyes can be used to dye viscose as it is a cellulose fibre as well as natural dyes.
