Hand-carded hand-plucked Waikato Grey

Hand-carded hand-plucked Waikato Grey

SKU: 36523641234523

I have handcarded this Waikato grey fibre with my drum carder, to produce this silky fluff. 

 

This fibre comes from silver grey possums which were swiftly dispatched by my friend Katherine, who is also a fibre artist- making possum-merino felt, and she also opposes 1080. 

 

I will hand-card this fibre to order.

Blend with another fine fibre such as merino, at 25:75 (possum:merino).

 

1oz is enough to blend in with merino (or other very fine fibre) to make two beanies (small hats).

 

If you would like enough to make an adult-sized jersey/sweater, we recommend 5oz.

 

Postage is an expensive part of buying possum fibre, especially if you would like it to be tracked. You might like to see if there are any other local fibre artists who also would like to try it. That way, you can share and reduce the cost of the postage. I can make up separate bags for each person, within that one parcel.
