Haunui ( New Zealand Halfbred) is a stabilized breed only available from New Zealand. The very fine wool blended with silk is an amazing spin! It is a cross between Merino and a longwool ( usually Romney or Leicester Longwool) with a lofty, soft, and fine hand.
Fiona’s Haunui wool is at the finer end of Halfbred, with micron counts that are more often found in Merino wool. It has been consciously selected with handspinning in mind.
This Tri-Blend combines three shades of grey for a heathered effect.
I take great care to make sure that dye is sufficiently exhausted and heat set the fibers so there is minimal to no run-off. However, due to differences in water across the globe, what runs clear for me may bleed a little for you.
Please take care to hand wash your finished item in cool water and lay flat to dry. I also make every attempt possible to use a photograph that is as true as possible to the real color. Monitor settings may vary.
