Woohoo! Just got back from Zeilinger Woolen Mill a bunch of wonderful combed top. This luscious top is made from our prime natural colored Shetland neck wool and lamb fleeces. It is all grade one superfine Shetland and is very soft. Our Shetland top is wonderful to spin as is, drafts wonderfully, and can be felted. The natual colors blend beautifully together to make any sort of knitted good (Fair Isle is perfect for this!) or spin to weave that gorgeous tartan blanket. Or, have fun dyeing or handpainting your own colors. Shetland dyes beautifully!
Top row, l to r: emsket, light grey, grey katmoget (medium grey)
Bottom row, l to r: white, shaela, fawn katmoget (dark cream)
Combed Top is priced at $3.75/oz or $3.25/oz for one pound or more. I now take Paypal.
