We pride ourselves on using the finest quality supplies within our craft kits, and our wool is a huge part of that. Each of our kits contains ethically sourced Merino wool roving from the UK.
What is Merino wool? Merino is one of the oldest and best-known breeds of sheep, and its wool is famous for this light and soft texture.
Merino wool is a great wool for crafts such as needle felting. The fineness of the wool makes it easy to manipulate, and it holds shape well due to the elasticity fibres within the wool. Use it to add colour to your projects. We have so many different colour ways within our wool bundles, there is sure to be something suitable for the project you’re working on.
We love seeing how you get on with your kits, so make sure to tag us on Facebook and on Instagram using #HawthornHandmade. And don't forget to leave us a review on Facebook letting us know how you got on!
As well as needle felting, you can also incorporate wool into your woven projects, just like this week's maker of the moment Alison, who shared her amazing weave with us via Instagram. For your chance to be featured as our maker of the moment, simply share with us a picture of your in-progress or completed kit via Facebook, Instagram or via firstname.lastname@example.org.
