Dyed Wool Versus Undyed Wool

I've noticed something really interesting about dyed wool versus natural wool. It is just like going to the beauty salon and coloring you hair. The coloring treatment leaves your hair super shiny and smooth. Natural wool fibers smooth out when they are dyed. I have found it much easier to create a super fine cobweb felt using dyed fiber. The natural wool has more crimp left in each fiber and when felted it makes the finished textile bulkier.
