This is not Floor stock, it is sent from the warehouse. Merino wool is very soft with a closely spaced crimp. You can spin a fine woollen yarn using the long draw or a worsted yarn using a short draw. Merino is ideal for super fine knitting, crochet and lacework. Ashford Merino sliver is a 100% New Zealand product with wool from pasture-fed sheep from our high country sheep stations. We know many of the 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 mulesed. It is scoured (washed) using an environmentally-friendly, biodegradable detergent . The wool is then dried and dyed. The fibre is then gently opened and conditioned. Carding machines align the fibres and remove any foreign matter. It is then gilled and combed.
