003 Corridale Dyepot Sliver Cheesecake / kg

This is not Floor stock, it is sent from the warehouse. 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. 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. After the sheep are shorn, on the farm, the wool is carefully skirted and checked. Only wool that is sound, clean with good fibre length, bulk and colour is selected. It is sent to a boutique New Zealand mill to be dyed, carded and combed. It is scoured (washed) using an environmentally-friendly, biodegradable detergent. The wool is then dried and dyed. Carding machines align the fibres and remove any foreign matter. It is then gilled and combed.
