SweetGeorgia Spinning Fibres in Targhee, Polwarth+Silk, and BFL+Silk. 
100g (approx 3.5 oz) bundles of spinning fibre

Targhee is bred from Rambouillet, Columbia, Lincoln, and Corriedale crosses and produces a wool that has 25% long wool and 75% fine wool characteristics. This wool dyes beautifully and is super soft at approximately 23 to 23.5 microns. Targhee wool has a matte finish and feels spongey, making for wonderfully soft and lofty handspun yarns.

Polwarth+Silk is our decadent hand-dyed spinning fibre blend of 85% super soft Polwarth wool and 15% tussah silk for shimmer.

The Polwarth sheep is a mix of 75% Merino (for softness) and 25% Lincoln (longer staple length) and a must-spin in your repertoire! Polwarth is wonderful for felting, so be sure to treat this fibre gently if you don’t want to felt it! Fibres compact during dyeing, so pre-draft a little for better spinning. Hand wash and lay flat to dry. Hand-dyed in professional acid dyes for excellent colourfastness.

BFL+Silk. Bluefaced Leicester 75% and Tussah Silk 25% blended together for a very lustrous and luxurious top. BFL is one of the softest, glossiest medium-long wools (longer fibre staple length), and naturally more durable, making it a favourite spinning fibre for many. The glittery tussah silk in this blend adds to the softness and shine, making this an indulgence to spin. To care for this fibre blend, wash handknits by hand in cool to warm water and lay flat to dry. Hand-dyed in professional acid dyes for excellent colourfastness.
