It takes approximately 1 hour to make up 100g of fibre, some preparations take slightly longer than others. This is why at present I have a dispatch time of approximately 3-4 weeks, depending upon numbers of orders.

UK shipping will be sent via Royal Mail (either first class or tracked 48) and all international orders will be sent using a tracked method. Once your item is shipped I will send you an email with your tracking information.

If you have any questions, or would like changes to a blend, or a custom order, please contact me at carol@fellviewfibres.co.uk

The Grey Wagtail is a charming bird, most often found by clear fast running streams in the hills. As all wagtails, they flit around, seemingly moving their tails up and down constantly. The Grey Wagtail is on the Red List for UK birds. This means that their numbers have decreased by at least 50% in the last 20 years. Happily, due to improving water quality, the range that these birds can survive in is increasing.

I first made this colourway in merino. As I have been asked to make up some of my colourways in fibres other than merino, this gradient has now been produced in Shetland fibre. The white and dark grey fibres are naturally coloured.

The Shetalnd batts are always lighter and more airy than the merino batts, which many people find easier to spin.

Shetland fibre will felt. If you do not wish it to, hand wash in cool water.
