  • Alpine Blue - Hand Dyed Corriedale/Romney Wool
    Quick shop

    Hand Dyed wool for needle felting, spinning or blending.

    This roving is harvested each spring from one our sheep Lucy. Lucy is half Corriedale and half Romney. The fiber is processed into roving by a local mill and then hand dyed in our studio.

    These fibers are dyed in small batches with a method that intentionally results in mottled color.

    This listing is for 1/2 ounce pkg

    Color : Alpine Blue

    If you need larger quantities than those shown, please contact us.

    Notes:
    - Our sheep, Alpacas, Llamas and Angora goats are raised in a pasture and we take tremendous steps to minimize vegetative matter in the fiber.
    - Photos of shiny iridescent fibers is very difficult. Every effort is made to depict accurate colors in our photos but slight deviations may occur.
    - While every effort is made to exhaust the dye from the fiber, your water and soap choice may still have small amounts of color in them.

    Mordanting: use alum mordant at 15% WOF for both protein and cellulose fibres (there is enough tannin in chestnut so mordanting with tannin may not required).

                • Deeper colors can be achieved by first soaking the cutch extract in a weak mixture of caustic soda.
                • Add 1 tsp lye or sodium hydroxide to 1 gallon of water. Soak for 1 hour.
                • Add more water and neutralize with acetic acid or vinegar to pH7. Add this neutral solution to the dye bath.

                • The addition of iron at 2-4% WOF yields chocolate browns
                • Soda ash rinse will redden the cutch color.
                • Addition of 2% WOF hydrogen peroxide during the final 15 minutes of dyeing will darken cutch considerably.
                • Allowing the fiber to cool down and sit in the dye bath overnight will give the darkest shades.

              This roving is harvested each spring from one our sheep Lucy. Lucy is half Corriedale and half Romney. The fiber is processed into roving by a local mill and then hand dyed in our studio.

              These fibers are dyed in small batches that occasionally results in mottled color.

              This listing is for 1/2 ounce pkg

              If you need larger quantities than those shown, please contact us.

              Notes:
              - Our sheep, Alpacas, Llamas and Angora goats are raised in a pasture and we take tremendous steps to minimize vegetative matter in the fiber.
              - Photos of shiny iridescent fibers is very difficult. Every effort is made to depict accurate colors in our photos but slight deviations may occur.
              - While every effort is made to exhaust the dye from the fiber, your water and soap choice may still have small amounts of color in them.
