Kingfisher, a wool viscose roving blend of 50% merino wool and 50% viscose. Light and dark turquoise blended with shades of rust and orange. Uniblends are a brand new, unique felting product made exclusively for Unicorn Fibres. Comprising equal parts 19 micron Australian merino and viscose (plant) roving. Shades of bright yellow through to tawny gold create this blend. A glorious 50/50 blend of animal and plant fibre, with an ultra soft hand. With the sheen of the viscose and the extra-fine merino wool, it creates interesting possibilities for felting and a delight to spin. Our UNIBLENDS provide a cost effective alternative to silk blends with ingredients that have been sustainably sourced. Dyed in accordance with Oeko-Tek standards in a GOTS certified dye house. GOTS stands for Global Organic Textile Standards and certified companies must comply with comprehensive rules for the ecological and socially responsible production of textiles.
These wool viscose roving blends lend themselves to one directional layouts in felting. This maximises the effect of the viscose when felted. Especially good for cobweb style scarves, as the viscose incorporated into the wool means both sides look good. Saves time where normally decorative fibre would require laying out on each side, reducing thickness and adding strength to the item. Shingled laying out produces less definition than a cobweb layout but with a subtle sheen that adds life to the item. Prefelts made in one or 2 directions will also add lustre to any project. Uniblends now available in a variety of colours.
