A blend of New Zealand carded wools (about 27 microns).
"Maori" is a blend of carded wools from New Zealand. When we started creating this item back in 2007, we wanted a wool that was perfect for needle felting with a nice natural colour, that would allow us to create bright colours as well as soft pastel nuances. After numerous tests we came up with this blend that is now one of our iconic products, loved by both beginners and the more experienced. We couldn’t have chosen a more iconic name: Maori. A small tribute to a great nation and to the homeland of these wools!
These wools are carefully selected to ensure constant quality over time. All lots are MULESING FREE. The dyeing complies with Oeko-Tex Standard 100 and is done in our dyeinghouse which is GOTS 5.0 and GRS certified.
*** These wools are washed before carding. Yet vegetal matters cannot be completely removed.
This blend is perfect for both needle and wet felting and spinning.
Since colours can vary depending on your device’s monitor settings, we recommend buying our Colour Chart so that you can check the colours with you own eyes before proceeding with the final order. Do you want to check the quality of the material? Buy our Sample Box.
ATTENTION: all of our colours tend to have a good level of hardiness to light and to washing. However, dark and bright colours when in the presence of alkaline or very aggressive soaps and prolonged processing or washing may show a loss of colour. Thus, for any materials dyed with these types of colours we recommend that you carry out a processing and washing test using a small sample before you proceed working on your final project. The above mentioned testing is positively essential if these materials are to be combined with raw or light coloured materials. It is also good practice to never dry the materials in direct sunlight, instead be sure to use low lighting.
