50 gram, Merino x Border Leicester Core Wool
Freshly sheared, this rustic boutique core is from our 2021 batch and does have a little VM and possible second cuts (although I tried to take as much of these out as I could). It is straight off Dobby's back to you. Easy to wash, dry and process to a bright white. Sculpts quickly and firmly.
Dobby is a shy newcomer who has found a permanent place amongst our flock due to his superior fleece. He leans more towards the Merino but with the crimps and luster from the BL.
I've really enjoyed trailing this fleece and I'm so happy it is good enough to release to you. I used Dobby's fleece exclusively for my FUN Series as it responds well to wet felting of the Merino topcoat. Hope you enjoy the adventure of processing your own core. For processing tips go to my blog.
