An all purpose wool at around 27 microns, this natural white Corriedale roving comes from New Zealand. These off-white combed wool tops are about 4m per 100gm (4yd/3.5oz), and 23g/m (0.81oz/yd). With a long staple length of up to 80mm, Corriedale roving suits all kinds of felting projects that require a sturdier fibre. As well as being a great wool for needle felting, it also spins beautifully. Suitable for dyeing with acid based dyes and mixing with other wool and fibres such as viscose.
While the roving comes in a rope-like format with fibres aligned in one direction, we also stock a carded Corriedale /Coopworth blend – ‘Maori’ batts. Another favourite for needle felting and available in a variety of colours.
Corriedale sheep are the oldest of all the crossbred breeds with a hardy constitution and long life span. Popular as a general purpose wool and can be spun or felted for almost any purpose.
