Texel is originally from the Netherlands and produces a good dense fleece of medium quality, which is suitable for mitts, hats or outer garments.
It has been finished as a single ply yarn which gives it a soft and delicate texture.
This fibre was hand-dyed with professional wool dyes using my slow cooker dyeing method for colour fastness.
This yarn was finished with a chain ply method, which uses one single yarn to create a 3ply yarn to keep the colours separate in a variegated roving
The yarn thickness is in the 1” notch of the wooden gauge.
Wool ply – DK
Recommended needle size – 4-4.5mm
