This batch of our amazing Beersheba Farm ‘Castledale’ wool combed top is 24 micron, has a beautiful handle and is hand-dyed by us. It is ideal for spinning or felting.
Our “Castledale” sheep are a breed we are working on and range from 24-27 micron, easy spinning, good length of fibre and lovely sheen to the fleeces.
From the sheep on our farm and fully processed here in Victoria, this product has low “miles” and you can be assured that purchases help cover costs with managing our farm and sheep.
Please be aware that colours may vary on different computers and there may be slight variation in colour between batches. We try to have a picture of the current dyelot here.
Colour notes: This item is hand-dyed and ideally the dye has fully exhausted and/or any residual dye has been rinsed from the wool. However, sometimes, especially with the merino tops, there may be a small amount of excess colour rinse out of a finished product since I don’t like over-handling the fibre. As with new clothing, please make sure you wash in cool water and “wash separately”, especially on the first wash.
