This blend is made with 70% 'maori' wool from New Zealand and 30% bergschaf wool from Austria. These batts are short fibred and contain some vegetable matter.
Like all DHG products, the materials are carefully selected to ensure constant quality over time. All 'maori' wool lots are mulsing free.
The dyeing complies with Oeko-Tex Standard 100 and is done in their dyeing house which is GOTS 5.0 and GRS certified.
Please Note: this short fibre product is not suitable for wrapping around armature wire...For this, we recommend our Long Fibre Core Wool Batt
We always try to source the best wool possible to use when hand dyeing our products.
Our Strong Australian Merino Cross is sourced from NSW and our Fine Australian Merino is sourced from Italy.
These are hand dyed by us using Australian dyes.
They are not one solid colour, but a variety of shades as is characteristic of hand dyeing.
We recommend our Fine Merino for wet felting and spinning garments worn next to the skin. Their fine fibres make the finished product beautiful and soft.
For example: jewellery, singlets, cosy scarves etc.
We recommend our Strong Merino Cross for needle felting and Spinning outer wear garments. Their more course fibres make the finished product strong and hard wearing.
For example: needle felted creatures, hats, bags, play mats etc.
