Our wool fibers are hand dyed with professional textile dyes to create brilliant, long-lasting colors. We handle the top with care to ensure it is lofty and easily drafted. It is easier and more enjoyable to work with quality fiber; consequently, it yields a better result! Choose from four fiber types (more details).
We have dozens of colorways, from subtle to dazzling, and we add fresh inspirations regularly. View them in the scrolling images or download a pdf and then choose your favorites from the drop-down menu.
Frabjous Fibers hand dyed wool top is kettle-dyed "to order" in small batches from one of our dozens of original colorways; please allow 6 to 8 weeks for delivery. Due to the nature of hand dyeing, colors may differ slightly from braid to braid. If working from multiple braids, mix them together as you spin for the most blended look.
