What’s the difference between 19 micron and 23 micron Merino roving when used for felting?
19 micron is a finer wool than 23 micron. If you’re wet felting clothing or nuno felting, 19 micron is usually preferred as it's a little softer against the skin and has a nice drape when used in a very fine layout.
If you’re felting purses, slippers, vessels, wall hangings, or anything that needs to hold a shape, or be sturdy and hold up well (particularly slippers and purses), then I would recommend the 23 micron. I also recommend the 23 micron for needle felting and weavings as you may find it easier to work with since it’s a little courser.
Bottom line, 19 micron is finer and super soft. 23 micron is courser but still very soft.
How long is 4 ounces of roving?
Approximately 5 yards long.
What sort of packaging do you use to ship wool roving?
I give great care in packaging wool roving tightly in boxes, so it can't move around during shipping and partially felt. I want you to receive it in the same condition you would if you were buying it from me in person, so I will never ship wool roving in just a bag or envelope.
How long before you ship my order?
I ship Monday through Friday. Orders are usually processed and shipped within 1 – 3 business days. You will receive an automatic email notification once your order has shipped, which will include your tracking number. I ship via the US Postal Service.
Do you ship outside of the United States?
No, not at this time.
