  • Frau Woellfchen Shetland Wool Tops - Spinning Fiber

    There May Be Giants
    Fox Night

    Frau Woellfchen's Shetland Combed Wool Tops is a fabulous all-purpose spinning fiber that works well for everything from singles destined to become a lace shawl to thicker yarns for colorwork sweaters.

    The Shetland fibers are hand-dyed by Heike from Frau Woellfchen in her studio in the middle of Germany. As their undyed color is a minimally blended mix of lighter and darker Shetland fibers (a so-called "humbug"), the colorways come out with a lot of depth and are super fun to spin up.

    This blend is fabulous for new and experienced spinners alike,works well on wheels and spindles, and can also be used for felting.  Each braid contains approx. 150g of fiber.

    If you are curious, check out our blog posts about the difference between wool tops, batts, and rolags and what to make with hand-spun yarn. And if you are new to spinning, how about how to get started with spinning?
