Viscose roving / tops Passion



Red viscose roving – a rich, blood red. Glossy viscose tops made from plant fibre – regenerated wood pulp.
Viscose fibres are quicker to layout and easier to work with than silk roving as there is no static electricity. Viscose is also a cost effective alternative to silk roving and we stock a range of over 45 colours. The tops are 19-20 micron with a staple length min 65 mm (2.5 in) and very compatible with our extra fine merino wool roving. The colour passion comes in 3 other fibre types –  extra fine merino roving, carded woolCorriedale roving. See our whole range for other viscose shades or lollipop viscose roving for a brighter shade of red.

The viscose tops weigh around 25 gm/metre, so 20gm is +/- 80cm, and 50gm is +/- 2metres. Use for felting, spinning, paper making, textile art and mixed media. In felting, laying viscose over the entire surface of the wool adds a wonderful lustre, strengthens the felt and reduces pilling. Lay down in fine shingles, clouds or in long thin strands to achieve different textural and shiny effects. A little goes a long way. Viscose fibres will not felt on their own as they have no scales.

Being a cellulose fibre, viscose dyes beautifully using fibre reactive dyes. Imported from Italy, this DHG product carries the Oeko-Tex certification, so it contains no harmful substances. In-house dyeing of this eco sustainable fibre  complies with the GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard). Extra-fine merino wool roving is also available in the same colours as our viscose.  Colours may vary depending on the settings of your device / monitor. See more ideas for using viscose. Being a plant based vegan fibre, viscose (rayon) makes a great alternative to silk tops / fibre or ‘artificial silk’.
