Short Fibre Merino Batt

Short Fibre Merino Batt

This superfine Short Fibre Merino Batt is specifically designed for wet felting and fast felting. The extra-short fibres gives it the ability to felt FAST.  You can even make a dry prefelt just by rubbing your hands together.   It is made from 100% - 19 Micron Count Merino Wool.  The wool from all of our Short Fibre Merino Batts are made with non-mulesed sheep.  We care about our sheep and care about what our customers use in their felting projects.
This felting wool is great for designers and jewellery because of how tight the fibres felt and how smooth they are.  This fibre is also great for making items that are close to the skin like slippers or hats because it is Merino it is still exceptionally soft.  
Merino Wool is an economically influential breed of sheep prized for its wool. The breed origins are from Spain, but the modern Merino was domesticated in Australia. Today, Merinos are still regarded as having some of the finest and softest wool of any sheep. Poll Merinos have no horns (or very small stubs, known as scurs), and horned Merino rams have long, spiral horns which grow close to the head. Merino is body temperature regulating as well so it will keep you nice and warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
I use it for all of my purses that I make and all of my hats.  It comes in over 30 different colors and is easily blendable. Because it is in a batt form, you don't have to pull the fibres apart so much as you would with roving of top. It can also be used in a drum carder to blend the fibres evenly. 
Short Fibre Merino Batt is great in so many different applications.
