This beautiful fiber comes from World of Wool in the UK. I feel they have the best selection, of quality fibers, I have found to date.

Soybean is a new vegetable based fibre. It was invented in 1937 by Henry Ford and was called soy wool. This unique fibre was used in car upholstery at that time, but the fibre became victim to the second world war and also the advent of new man-made fibres, which were cheaper to produce. The fibre was re-invented in 1998 and promoted as an eco-fibre in 2000. The fibre is complementary in blends with other fibres and is not generally used on its own. In blends with Cashmere or wool it improves hang and drape qualities, giving a superior lustre to the product and helping to reduce rubbing/pilling. It is possible to use the fibre 100% in yarns.

Absorption properties are similar to cotton and so the fibre feels cool. Its ventilation is superior to that of cotton with a silk-like appearance. The fibre is anti-ultraviolet and therefore, retains dyed colours well and is superior to viscose and silk in this respect. It is stronger than wool, cotton and silk but not polyester. Main producer today is China.

Available in smaller amounts for Fiber Artist with limited budgets 👩🏼‍🎨
