Shop Update – New England Grey Carded Sliver

Long draw fans, do I have a treat for you…..this domestic wool from small farms in New England, scoured, carded, and pulled into sliver. So fun to spin into bouncy lofty yarn, and the natural oatmeal color adds a great depth to the colors.

Black Tulips NE Fine Grey Sliver
Autumns Breath NE Fine Grey Sliver
Autumn Maple NE Fine Gray Roving
Verdigris NE Fine Grey Sliver

These do contain some VM (vegetable matter such as hay….sheep gotta eat!), and some neps and noils from the shearing and minimal processing.  Most of the VM falls out when spinning, and the rest plus neps can be either pulled out easily, or left in for a charming rustic texture.  You can see my assessment and spinning of this wool here.

You can find all these New England Carded Slivers at ThePaintedTiger.com.
