Sunny Yellow & Gypsy Wine Falkland Wool
Ah, Falkland wool! It almost looks like candy. For spinners and felters, it is candy! Falkland wool is soft, but still has a little more texture to it. Spinners tend to like wool that feels good to them as they draft and Falkland is a fave. It also has a very long staple length which is why so many in the felting community are starting to look for this fiber. They can cover a larger surface area faster and still have that downy feel. It was actually on the encouragement of a felting friend that I started to carry Falkland at Wind Rose.
Today I have two new colors in my studio. I have a bright Sunny Yellow and one of my personal favorites, Gypsy Wine. I love the way they look swirled together!
