Hand dyed Merino d’Arles fibre

Predominantly shades of ultramarine blue, with some emerald green and some very small undyed areas.

103g. Please note this fibre is in two unequal pieces.

This Merino d’Arles fibre comes from sheep raised in Provence, where their shepherds take them up to the mountains in the summer to escape the heat - this journey is known as the transhumance and it’s quite a spectacle to see all the flocks joining together and forming a procession through the village streets.

The fibre is incredibly soft yet bouncy, 21.5 microns, and felts beautifully as well as producing lofty, springy yarn. A total joy.

This fibre is NOT superwash so any items you create will need to be hand washed.
