Viscose fiber - 4 oz

Loose viscose, aka rayon.  American made (usually from wood or other cellulose waste).  White, short fibers are 3/4 to 1 inch.  Use fiber reactive dyes.  Roll or trim and blend into wool for natural tweed nepps, or blend as is to create wispy areas that stay white when acid dyeing.  Can also be used as stuffing where a denser feel is desired.  Compostable alternative to plastic and bleached products.









Roving is carded fiber shaped into a long cylinder.  The fibers crisscross each other.  It is best suited to woolen preparations.  Combed top is further processed by combing, removing much of the remaining nepps and debris, and making the fibers parallel.  Top is best suited to worsted or semi-worsted preparations.


Micron indicates the fineness of the fiber.  Below 24 micron is considered fine.  Merino and Rambouillet are finewools.  The smaller the micron, the finer the wool.  Conversely, spinning count indicates finer fiber with higher numbers.  This is because it is based on the number of hanks of yarn that can be spun from a pound of wool.
