 Our Romney is grown in Central Otago,  New Zealand.  It is supplied to us by Peters Genetics.

 It is a very versatile product used in many different ways  spinning, felting weaving, stuffing,  ideal for kiwi knitting,  the list goes on. It is Dyed for us locally by Ashfords at their mill in Milton.  

  I myself love spinning it using  the long draw method, it seems to put air in my spin and leaves me with a lovely soft product to create with.

Tallyho Gotland  500gm $16.00  1kg  $32.00

  The Gotland is a rare breed of sheep, originally from the Isle of Gotland in the middle of the Baltic Sea. It is well know for its length, curls and natural lustre.  It is a simple pleasure to spin and work with. 

We have our own flock of Gotlands, hence this fibre is something we are proud of.

I personally find that a nice woollen spin keeps it soft. It overdyes well with stunning results.

 Carded Merino/ Possum           500gms $65.00  

  We source our Winter Possum from the depths of the forests in Rangitiki, this ensures it is true Winter Possum, which holds the heat and ensures warmth. 

The Silver we have combined with already combed 19 micron merino, we then recard it with the possum blended in.

The Brown, is 20 micron Merino carded only with the Possum blended in.

We recommend when using this fibre, after you have spun and hanked it , that you are a little harder in the washing process than you normally are to start the felting process to help stop the possum shedding.

Romney Specials    500gms  $18.00

We are lucky to have the only side exiting private machine in New Zealand, this enables us to put colours within colours, when spun this give a lovely flecked look. 

We have use Peters Genetics Romney, which has been dyed for us by Ashfords and then carded in a special way.  This fibre looks amazing plyed on itself or with one of the solid colours within it.  Let your imagination go.....  I personally like it plyed with a light silver.

It felts well for those sturdier projects.  Romney is a great base for weaving as well.

As this is a popular fibre we dont always have them in stock, just ask. Sometimes there is some one off colour mixes on hand as well.      MORE PICTURES COMING....
