Dutch wool grey The ecru Dutch wool sliver originates from the Texel sheep. The other undyed colors are made by mixing the hairs of different types of Dutch sheep. Dutch wool is rough (36µ) and the hairs are long. The wool is washed with potash, a mineral found in the Sahara desert, and then carded into a sliver with the width of a wrist.
Dutch wool is not suitable for felting because it is a rough type of wool with little scales. It is used mainly for needle felting, spinning yarn for clothing and to fill up the limbs of puppets.

flax sliver Flax fibres are the bast fibers of the flax plant, which is also grown in Flanders and the Netherlands.
Flax was extensively cultivated in ancient Egypt, where the temple walls had paintings of flowering flax and mummies were entombed in linen. Egyptian priests only wore linen, as flax was considered a symbol of purity.
Flanders became the major center of the linen industry in the European Middle Ages.
The textiles made from flax are known in the West as linen, and traditionally used for bed sheets, underclothes and table linen.
