Cheviot is a medium wool, that is perfect for hand spinning... If you are learning to spin, Cheviot is super easy to draft and will not fight you at all. Cheviot is a pure joy to spin... whether you are just starting out or super experienced, you will not be disappointed with this wool.
Since Cheviot is a medium wool, it can be a little scratchy for next to skin garments. It is however ideal for socks and fingerless mitts... also, Cheviot is virtually un-feltable... so there is little to no pilling with finished items.
Cheviot is a UK breed that originated in the Cheviot Hills... This fiber was imported from England.
Hand dyed by me (Twin Mommy) in my kitchen using professional acid dyes... I make sure that all dye is exhausted, then rinse the fiber once with mild soap and once with hot water just to make sure that there is no bleeding or residue remaining.
Wash in warm or cool water with a mild soap or shampoo. Even thought Cheviot is extremely difficult to felt, I would still recommend not agitating it.
