Soybean is a new vegetable based fiber. It was invented in 1937 by Henry Ford and was called soy wool. This unique fiber was used in car upholstery at that time, but the fiber became victim to the second world war and also the advent of new man-made fibers, which were cheaper to produce. The fiber was re-invented in 1998 and promoted as an eco-fiber in 2000.

Silky and complementary in blends with other fibers with a delicious cool feel. In blends with Cashmere or wool it improves hang and drape qualities, giving a superior luster to the product and helping to reduce rubbing/pilling. It is possible to use the fiber 100% in yarns.

Absorption properties are similar to cotton and so feels cool. Its ventilation is superior to that of cotton with a silk-like appearance. The fiber is anti-ultraviolet and therefore, retains dyed colors well and is superior to viscose and silk in this respect. It is stronger than wool, cotton and silk

Wensleydale Wool

As a novice spinner I have been trying all kinds of wool to spin. The Wensleydale i purchased from you in the beginning of June has just been spun this week. I plyed two bobbins of this fabulous wool today and they are so very soft and squishy. I can’t wait to use them. Will absolutely be back for more.
Thank you so much no hesitation in recommending this product
