Soy silk is a material that is exactly what it sounds like, a silk-like fibre that is made from the soybean residue. Making something out of what would otherwise be a waste product.
This can be used in the same way as silk in spinning and felting projects.
This can be dyed using any acid dyes.
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.
