Mix and Match Masham Fibre bundles went down really well at Wharfe Wool Fair recently. All hand dyed with various natural dyes, 25g bundles in lots of inspiring colours. I’ve now put together some sets of five bundles available now on Etsy.
Masham is a lovely fibre, long in staple length and with a good lustre. The Masham sheep is bred from a Teeswater or Wensleydale ram (hence the length and lustre) and a Dalesbred or Swaledale ewe.
Masham is great for felting projects or perhaps for spinning for a colourwork project. Like Wensleydale, the fibre should be spun with a low twist otherwise the resulting yarn can be a bit coarse and string-like.
