ok so i cant say what i'm making or who it's for, but i need some roving advice! Shocked
what's a good natural white/cream colour wool that is curley? i need to needle felt some small curley bits and was wondering if i just got my wensleydale a bit wet and then let it dry would it curl up?

Natural lock Wensleydale is the curliest I've seen.  It's pretty easy to find, I got mine off Ebay.

Would Mohair curls suit?

English Leicester is my fibre of choice for curly bits.

It is naturally curly and has a similar sheen to mohair, but it is coarser and much easier to needlefelt.

I don't have a photo of  it needlefelted, but here is a photo of a dyed English Leicester fringe on a scarf I recently made. You can see from the picture just how curly it is!
