£1.95£30.00

Pelssau (see description below) is an extremely fast-felting wool that is softer than C1 crossbred (see description) and felts like Gotland. The dark grey fibres of Pelssau blended with white C1 produces a richer colour when over-dyed. This wool is suitable for wet felting to create flat felt as well as vessels and structures. It is also excellent for needle felting.
