CT87 – 1oz Hemp Natural Fiber Dyed With Alkanet Root. Purple Sliver Natural Top Roving.
This listing is for 1 ounce Natural Hemp Dyed with Alkanet Root Eco friendly 100% Hemp Sliver.
The hemp was mordant and then dyed with a Alkanet Root solution and soaked in water and air dried. The hemp was mordant prior to dyeing but was left overnight and not agitated, so please note that the roving did not dye in a uniform color but has a mottle effect where some of the natural color can still be seen around the purple dye. To remove any additional dye from the fiber, it is suggested that you soak the roving in your choice of soap and then rinse prior to using the hemp sliver,
Note: The last picture is of 2 oz of dyed indigo roving spun and ply. I found that after dyeing and drying the bast fibers did not draft easily so I did card the sliver and then spun the roving. The picture is for reference purposes only and is not included in the listing.
This hemp top sliver is great for carding, spinning, knitting, felting — the list goes on and on the many things you can make with the hemp roving. Have fun using this bast fiber to create unique art batts by mixing the hemp with other cellulose fibers like cotton or go wild and mix is with protein fibers such as wool and silk. Hemp can add texture, strength or weight to your spinning projects. Or on its own it is thought to have great antibacterial properties.
This roving is ready to ship now.
♻ Have fun upcycling this into your new project. ♻
