Corriedale Spinning Fibre

$17.00 CAD

Fibre Colourway: Beachside Brunch

Corriedale is a cross between English Leicester or Lincoln and Merino, so you’ll see characteristics like softness and crimp mixed with medium-long staple and toughness. These characteristics make it well-suited to worsted or semi-worsted spinning, but this fibre can also be easily spun into a woollen yarn.

Our Corriedale fibre has not been treated to be machine-washable and can most definitely be used for wet- or needle-felting. When you are finishing your yarns and projects, be sure to wash them gently and lay them flat to dry for the best results.

The Corriedale fleece is a medium wool with a good crimp, a soft handle, and is very easy to spin. The wool produced is approximately 25-30 microns with a staple length of 80 - 120 mm. Corriedale originates from New Zealand. Perfect for hand spinning, hand felting and many other craft uses.

  • Fibre Content: 100% Corriedale wool

lovely vibrant colors

Loving this corriedale! The colors are rich and blend beautifully. I've already spun up both "salted caramel" and "stormchaser" and the resulting yarn is next-to-skin ok for me.

One note - the braids are VERY tightly compacted and impossible to spin without careful pre-fluffing - but after I went down the length of the roving and carefully teased all the fibers apart, spinning was a breeze.

Worth the Wait

While shipping took a bit longer than expected, the fiber is easy to spin and colors are beautiful!
