These tops are made with 70% fine merino wool from both Australia and South America and 30% tussah silk from China.
As always, all the materials are carefully selected to ensure constant quality over time. All merino wool is mulsing free.
The dyeing complies with Oeko-Tex Standard 100 and is done in DHG's dyeing house which is GOTS 5.0 and GRS certified.
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.
