These English Leicester locks are provided to Salamanca Wool Shop by Sally Ridgway. They are grown and sourced from Melton Park in Tasmania, then hand dyed at Sally's studio in Tasmania using Australian made dyes. These curly wool lamb locks and beautiful and easy to use.
The staple lengths will vary as these curly wool locks are from lambs at their first shearing and because these locks have been hand dyed 'in the grease' it means they have not been washed and disturbed too much prior to dyeing, there may be a little residual lanolin (lovely for your hands) and possibly the odd stray piece of vegetable matter remaining.
For the spinner, these will add texture and lovely pops of colour to your textured art yarns and can be added as you spin.
For the felters and needle felters, these lock can add texture and dimension to your project. Flick the cut ends and lay them out with a little matching coloured merino covering the end to make sure the felt in properly.
