Sno Cone Sock Carding Kit - Dorset, Île de France Cross, and Mohair
Weight: Approx. 5oz/141g
Materials: 1oz Mohair Top, 2oz Dorset Lamb, 2oz Île de France/Dorset/Cheviot
We have had some requests for carding kits geared towards certain projects and we are here to fill it! This blend is formulated with breeds for strong wool only socks, gloves, or other higher wear items. The longer staple of the Île de France Cross paired with the shorter, downier Dorset Lambswool will trap the shorter fibers during spinning and create a very lofty and warm ending yarn. Mohair will add a wonderful touch of strength and shine. Spun with multiple plies, this should make for a hard wearing and long lasting yarn! Vegetation has mostly been picked out of the fleeces. There may be some dirt trapped in the tips of the Dorset Lambswool.
We cannot guarantee a color ratio from washed fleeces. Vegetation (this can include burrs, so be careful!) will and nepps could be present. This listing is for just washed farm fleece that will need to be prepared before spinning. We source clean and strong luxury wools from a variety of small farms.
A Note on Color: Our items are dyed with high quality acid dyes and rinsed clear, but you may experience some color bleed on the first hand wash as is normal. We also do our best to represent accurate color in our photographs, but all monitors are calibrated differently and may alter that.
