Polwarth/Tussah | Merino, Yak, Silk

Hand Painted Spinning Fibers are available for purchase at select Local Yarn Shops and from my Etsy Shop

All fibers are available in all colorways, with the exception of Merino, Yak, Silk because some colors do not look good dyed over the gray color of this fiber.

All fibers below were produced by combing the fibers, and are called combed top. It is a delightful preparation to spin. It is created by passing fibers through combs, aligning the fibers and removing all short fibers, second cuts, and vegetable matter. The result is a smooth even preparation that results in an even yarn. No slubs, nubs, neps, or other sort of lump in this fiber.

Roving – Combed Top is sometimes called roving.
