Combed Top

Combed Top128 Products

We offer a wide variety of hand dyed combed top colorways. Often incorrectly referred to as "roving," combed top is a fiber prep that has been meticulously carded through carding machines in a wool mill to align all of the fibers in the same direction. This allows you to take the fiber as is and spin a nice, smooth worsted style of yarn from it. 

The majority of our combed top is dyed on superwash merino, but sometimes you'll also see it on non superwash merino, or our favorite polwarth/silk 60/40 base, as well as Superwash merino/Tencel. We can do other bases as well, but each different base will take the colors differently. 

Any of our yarn colorways in our hand painted yarn collection can also be dyed on combed top or rolags by special request for no additional charge.
