Purple Merino Wool Top


Our purple Merino Wool Top is the best quality wool to felt with because it felts fast due to the fibres being fine. As a result, our solid colour merino tops are great for spinning, felt-making and embellishing machines. It also blends well with other fibres. See how one of our very own Wooly Knitters has used her merino wool tops, including the purple merino wool top to create rainbow soap dishes here. The colours are consistent and repeatable and can be blended easily with little effort.

Merino Wool Tops

Merino wool works well with the wet felting technique and can be manipulated with a felting needle to create three dimensional felted objects.  One of the reasons that merino wool is so popular is its warmth relative to weight. The fabric has a natural loft that traps heat very efficiently between the fibres, making it warmer than a synthetic of the same weight. But it’s also good in the heat as merino regulates your body temperature really well. (Our wool tops are all sold by 25g increments.)
