There are only a few mills left in the US that can produce true combed top. While some may call their roving “top”, true top is produced from combing, not carding. I was fortunate to get on the schedule with a mill that offers true combed top.
Piglet and Maimie are both Columbia Rambouillet ewes that have grown up and grown old together. These two girls were BFF’s throughout their lives. Selia is Maimie’s daughter. She is a Rambouillet x Border Leicester cross with the fine wool characteristics she got from her mother. It was only fitting to transform these three lovely fleeces into top.
- Natural and hand dyed top from 100% wool.
- Mill Processed
- Approximately 4 oz. each. Spools and spindles not included.
- Buy 2 or more 4 oz. braids for a discount applied in cart.
- Appropriate for your next-to-skin project.
Sheridan Flats top by Piglet, Minnie and Selia is produced from fleece grown on our farm in Washington (the state). The top was milled in the US. We are proud to offer products produced by small businesses in the US.
Once the top is spun into yarn, hand wash only with cool water and a gentle wool shampoo. Use a towel to press out excess water, do not wring or twist. Air dry flat.
