Product Details

Corriedale wool has a defined, even crimp and is smooth and easy to spin or felt. You can spin a fine to medium woollen, worsted or semi-worsted yarn. Corriedale will bulk after washing and has good elasticity. Yarn spun from it is ideal for baby wear, woven, knitted or crocheted garments.

Ashford Corriedale sliver is a 100% New Zealand product with wool from pasture-fed sheep, by farmers some of whom have farmed the land for generations. They take great pride in the quality of their wool and the high standard of animal husbandry. The sheep are well cared for and are not mulesing.

After the sheep are shorn, on the farm, the wool is carefully skirted and checked. Only wool that is sound, clean with good fiber length, bulk and color is selected. It is sent to a boutique New Zealand mill to be dyed, carded and combed.

This is premium grade, fine and very soft, dyed Corriedale wool from New Zealand. Great for blending, spinning, and felting, projects.

(Note: Sliver is pronounced sly-ver).
