The Uniblend wool viscose roving range brings animal and plant fibre together in a harmonious mix. Blended rovings of extra fine merino and viscose combine to create a unique and luxurious felting product. Super soft, the viscose adds sheen and another dimension to felting and spinning. Exclusive to Unicorn Fibres and made from 50% 19 micron merino wool rovings and 50% viscose fibre.
This blend lends itself to one directional layouts as used in cobweb felting. Unidirectional layouts maximise the effect of the colour variations. Use as the top layer of a project to retain the natural marbling and bands of colour. Great for making interesting felted cords and balls with a marbled look . Additional colours coming in the new year. These images illustrate how various ways of laying out create different effects.
