About Our Hand Dyed Yarns and Fibres

Superfine 18.5 micron Tasmanian Merino Wool Tops 

The wool produced in Tasmania and Australia is renowned all over the world for its fine bright fibres grown by sheep that are able to graze free in our beautiful cool climate with crisp fresh clean air. 

Grazing in free range wide open spaces, breathing the purest of air, the Tasmanian wool growers are skilled in perfecting a magnificent, high quality wool product optimising whiteness, strength and soft touch.

Our supplier is one of the top exporters by volume and exports to a diverse range of customers all over the world, meeting the needs of clients in Asia, Italy, Japan, India, the United States of America and throughout continental Europe. Upholding the traditional methods of wool valuation.

 

Australian Undyed Wool Tops

I source a number of my wool fibres from small boutique growers within Australia that have good farming and animal practices and promote 100% Australian grown and processed wool fibres.

These smaller growers encourage and practice transparency within the Australian supply chain from fleece to finished product. They also use sustainable and low carbon fibre footprints.

Yarn Bases

Mohair Silk

  • Lace Weight Super Kid Mohair & Mulberry Silk
  • Lace weight 72% brushed Super kid Mohair 28% Mulberry Silk Yarn (1/8.4 Nm)
  • With a generous 420m on each 50 gram hank, a little goes a long
Needles and Gauge
  • Recommended Needle Size: 3 - 4mm (US 2-6) needles
  • Gauge (stocking stitch): 32sts x 40 rows over 10cm (4 inches) on 3.25mm (US 3) needles

This popular lace weight brushed mohair/silk yarn uses the softer and rarer Super kid mohair to produce the softest, most luxurious mohair/silk yarn. Two strands of mulberry silk hold the mohair fibres in place to add radiance and strength. Gentle enough for next to skin wear.

Super kid mohair is from the first shearing and these are the softest and finest fibres the mohair goats will ever produce.

This is a super light and airy yarn and can be worked at many different gauges. It produces gossamer-like items when large needles or hooks are used and soft, fluffy items at tighter gauges. It can also be carried with another yarn to add a delicate haze and to produce a surprisingly warm fabric.
