Angelina Spinning Fiber is terrific for blending with your favorite wool roving for added bling. 
A little Angelina will go a long way!  Angenlina is a great way to jazz up your handspun yarns or batts before you spin and add a little zing!

Elasticity can also be added to handspun yarns or batts with nylon fibers such as Snow Mountain or StarbrightFirestar will creates a shimmer in your yarn, similar to the addition of silk.  You will find that adding nylon will create a yarn with more memory, which is especially important when knitting socks!

All 7 Yaks Design fibers are hand dyed with professional dyes that are both lightfast and washfast for long lasting, fade resistant color.

StarBright is a wonderfully soft blending nylon.  This high luster tri-lobal nylon doesn’t have the luster level of Firestar, but it does have far more luster than Snow Mountain.  StarBright’s softness is equal to a 19 micron wool which puts it in the superfine realm.

Starbright can be carded to blend with your favorite fibers, or spun and plied with another strand of wool, etc.  It also adds memory to your yarn which makes it ideal for knitting socks and other garments where memory is important.

Snow Mountain nylon is a great, inexpensive blending fiber with softness and draftability.  It’s perfect to add to your batts to strengthen your favorite spinning fibers.  Snow Mountain also adds memory to your yarn which makes it ideal for knitting socks and other garments where memory is important.

Firestar is ideal for blending with your other fibers to add a little shimmer and strengthen your spinning projects.  A little bit of lustrous Firestar nylon can add strength to a sock yarn, sparkle to a weaving project, or shine to a shawl, scarf or sweater.  Firestar can also be added to your needle felting projects for a smidge of pizzaz.

Colonial Wool Top is produced with South American Corriedale Wool. Easy to spin with a long staple fiber, an approximate 27.5 micron length and has an average staple of 90mm (approx. 3.5 inches). This strong, durable wool has next to skin comfort while being versatile enough for any outer garment.

Colonial Wool Top has rich, vibrant hand dyed colors. Absolutely wonderful to use as is, or for blending your own one of kind shade of batt and yarn. A favorite for needle felting and wet felting too!
