Our MC-1 Wool is processed into batts are used by felt artists all over the world for their life-like colors, high quality, ease of wet felting and needle felting and for the smooth, consistent end result that artists and hobbyists desire in their felting creations.
MC-1 WOOL Batting is approx. 25 micron, from U.S. Sheep and comes in a wide range of colors...approximately 90. It would be considered a medium fine fiber.It also has a short, crimpy staple. It can be wet felted or needle felted, and can achieve a smooth surface in either case.
Use this for the outside of a needle felted sculpture (see any of our needle felting videos on youtube, and is also great for wet felting such as pictures, vessels, slippers, etc. I think it is a bit too coarse for a scarf...not quite fine enough for "next to the skin"...except for slippers and hats. (in my opinion)
It is used a LOT IN 2D (both needle and wet felting). It really helps that there are so many colors and it is easy to blend.

Our signature wool batting known as MC-1 comes from sheep raised
on U.S. farms. It is carefully washed with an eco-friendly soap,
and air dried. No harsh chemicals are used in this process, and our fiber is
not "carbonized". It is then dyed professionally and prepared into
large, lofty batts on a drum carder.
