Corriedale roving – Snow




Snow, a white Corriedale roving / top – whiter than natural white roving, but not as white as snow or paper. An all purpose wool at around 27 microns,  this smooth combed Corriedale roving comes from New Zealand.  These 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. While still soft, it possesses more bulk and spring than merino, making Corriedale  a great wool for needle felting. It also spins beautifully and  can be blended or carded with a variety of other wool and fibres  including viscose.

Dyeing of this DHG product complies with Oeko-Tex standards for safety and GOTS – Global Organic Textile Standard. While this white corriedale roving comes in a  rope-like format with the fibres aligned, we also stock carded Corriedale . ‘Maori’ batts – a blend of Corriedale and Coopworth wool, favoured by needle felters and available in a variety of colours.

With a hardy constitution and long life span, Corriedale sheep  originated in New Zealand in the 1880’s – the oldest of all the crossbred breeds .  Commercially viable and a popular general purpose wool for felting and spinning. Most commonly used for heavier wearables, certain knitting yarns, mats, boots & other durable items.
