RAMIE ROVING ~ Suitable for spinning, doll hair, dyeing, felting when mixed with wool
Ramie fibre, a nettle plant, is white with a silky lustre, similar to flax in absorbency and density but coarser (25-30 microns). One of the strongest natural fibres, it has low elasticity and dyes easily. Strands of ramie range up to 190 cm in length. Great for spinning, dying and other fiber arts including doll hair. This fiber can be dyed using natural or commercial dyes (Fiber reactive are best) even hair dye can be used (though I don't have any personal experience with that one).
FLAX ROVING ~ Suitable for spinning & Needle Felting
Available as bleached and natural
Flax top for spinning, carding, felting and other textile arts, made from the flax plant.
The linen is certified with the ' Master of linen' certificate, which means that it is all sourced in Western Europe and dew retted.
Flax fibre is great for Needle felting! Much better than Bamboo fibre.
To Spin: It does help to keep a small bowl of water nearby and keep your fingers wet as you spin. Smooth down the long-staple fibers to get a smooth textured yarn.
The beautiful Moonscape is made by Jane Cohen using natural and bleached Flax fibres
