How to Choose the Perfect Wool For Any Project

Just like our wool, cashmere, and alpaca, alpaca fiber is more than just yarn. It is a super-durable fiber that develops indigo, indigenous seed, and mottling when leaving the fiber lodge. Classic finger spun silk, wool, and acrylic yarns can be dyed within 3-4 weeks depending on their longevity. Excellent for hand-knitted garments, it can be worked into organic yarn as well as artificial yarns such as our Badger Wool yarn. This waterborne yarn is made using an engineered fiber blend. When the yarn is soaked in water, overnight thorough washing with warm water and mild soap, it releases the fiber’s natural ingredients, proving to be a natural faster drying fiber. Please refer to the full list of natural ingredients included on our yarns page for more information.

Most yarns exhibited in our showroom are part of our award-winning, licensed fiber line that has won multiple awards and is widely known for its durable and soft, bunny felted, soft, natural fibers. We currently offer all of our complete lines of felted fiber yarns as well as acrylic plush yarns and cotton blends. For specialty projects using fiber sticks, our candy & cotton fibers, Pima Cotton Candy, can be used.

Many of Nature’s gifts to man have given us these traditional, natural fibers such as Cashmere, Pig Cashmere, and Dk Felt so that we may not have to be frustrated by cutting our fiber bundles. As our denim fabrics are about fabrics and styling, natural fibers of varying textures can maintain the style and wear like denim.

Cashmere – The heart of every bazaar’s finer silks, this textile soft, silky fibers have taken the world by storm. Handmade in Turkey, Cashmere has a concentrated surface area that allows the fibers to cling to each other in most other fabrics. As it slides, it undulates, mottling and tonal shifts creating stunning absorbency and movement with every wash. Cashmere is unbleached natural, un-dyed, self-weathering, non-resin blended, untrimmed, and all-natural so it truly is the perfect wool for any textiles project.

Pig Cashmere – This soft all-natural fibrous spin is a favorite among cotton dyers for its unmistakably warm and luxurious feel. Lightweight, durable and allow you to pull out strands from the weave that can be used over and over without washing. Fur sometimes has a softer, smoother texture.

DkFelt – Although this smuttier cousin of Cashmere might be used in sweaters, tights, dresses in that way, we also love it for this silky, striped, textured yarn that is hand spun in New Zealand just for us.
