Ideas for Use:

Separate into individual groups of colour.
Spinning - Open the fibre out and spin a soft single thread. Ply with a fine cotton, silk or commercial woollen thread to strengthen the yarn for knitting. The fine thread will be almost hidden in the yarn and won't obscure the fabulous colours.
Weaving - Use the beautiful shiney staples for extra texture in handwoven fabrics. Handknot the staples into beautiful rugs or wall hangings.
Felting - Use the coloured staples as surface decoration. They look fantastic lightly felted into the surface of a natural colour felt.
