Introducing FAST Fibre "Twist" - the blending of two natural colours. This batch is a "twist" of natural white and brown wool. Both fleeces are from "backyard" sheep of unknown breed living on the NSW Central Coast. The wool is soft and slightly springy. The wool in this batch is the exact same as in Batch #11, and the white to brown ratio is the same. Due to the settings on our carding equipment, the appearance of this batch is a white "core" and a brown exterior.
FAST (Fibre Arts Shed Traceable) Fibre for Slow Craft is our initiative to make available to our customers locally grown and traceable wool and alpaca fibres. Sourced and processed by us in small batch runs at the Fibre Arts Shed on the NSW Central Coast, each collection will include as much information about the origin and breed of the fibres as we can. We are offering these fibres as carded roving in 200g lots. The fibre has been through a thorough washing process but may still contain a small amount of VM (vegetable matter, i.e., grass).To support our local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community, we will donate $5 from the sale of every 200g lot of FAST Fibre to the Yerin Eleanor Duncan Aboriginal Health Centre, which plays a vital role in our community. Yerin has been providing primary health care to the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Community on the Central Coast for the last 25 years.
