Hand Dyed fleece for spinning Tunis Starry Night

$ 7.00

Tunis is a rare heritage breed which has been in the US since the 1700’s.  Originally a gift to George Washington from Tunisia the breed has developed its own specific qualities from the original stock.  The lambs are born red and as they mature developed a lovely creamy color with a spring texture.  Yarn Spin from Tunis will have a definite spring and sponge factor.

The fleece comes from a Tunis ewe who lives rightDown the road from me in Kentucky. The fleece is not coated, and veggie matter is very minimal. To process for spinning, I recommend flicking the ends and spinning from the fold or hand carding. Fabulous for felting as well.
