Ashford's 30% Mulberry Silk

70% 19 micron Fine Merino

1.1 lb. (1/2 kilo) quantities

Combine the luxury of this lustrous white Mulberry silk (also know as 'Cultivated Silk' or 'Bombyx Silk') with the softness of fine 19 micron matte New Zealand Merino wool. Staple length is approx. 3 inches (±7.5cm).

Merino wool is very soft with a closely spaced crimp. You can spin a fine woollen yarn using the long draw or a worsted yarn using a short draw. Merino is ideal for super fine knitting, crochet and lacework.

Ashford wool sliver is 100% pure New Zealand wool. Our wool is grown on sheep farms in the South Island of New Zealand where the sheep graze on large grassy paddocks and are free from mulesing. They only use wool with good length that is free from breaks, has high bulk, brightness, low vegetable matter and is the correct micron.

The wool is washed using a standard aqueous treatment with eco-friendly biodegradable detergent. Then in our very own woollen mill in Milton, our staff ensure every process is to the highest standard. We start by dyeing the wool using ecologically-safe Oeko-Tex compliant dyes (detailed information can be found at https://www.oeko-tex.com/en/our-standards/standard-100-by-oeko-tex), then steam dry, card, gill, comb and finally wind into bumps. The sliver is then ready to use with no waste or preparation.

Sold by the 1/2 kilo
