An alternative to Massam wool?

This is a close up of a felted teacosy made with Masham/Massam wool. It is a beautiful colour and is British. Trouble is it has a very long staple length which isn't particularly suitable for small items like teacosies; I am on the hunt for the same wonderful naturally grey coloured wool with a shorter staple; any felters out there that can help?

  1. You could try to pull the fibres by hand so they will rip into a shorter staple. Will take some patience though. Love the colour.
