Gotland Sheep are a lovable attractive sheep that deserve their great future!
This Gotland Fiber is 100% Gotland Wool that has been combed and processed into a roving. Our Gotland has a good tensile strength, smooth silky locks with a clean feel and appearance. Fiber diameter is 35 micron, with black fibers slightly thicker than the white. Full and weighty, perfect for outwear or even blended with another fiber to compliment it. Yak down is a compatible fiber we've found. Natural and undyed wool with a 5-7 inch staple length. This fibers high luster provides a gleam but proves durable and light weight in the finished product. Can be spun thick or thin and also felts and dyed beautifully. Perfect for weaving too!
Gotland is the special, some might even say magical, fiber used to make the Elven cloaks in The Lord of The Rings Movie Series as well as the magical attire in The Chronicles of Narnia.
I liked the feel and look of this wool. It was enjoyable to spin and has a little bit of natural sheen and a slightly heathered look. It had more drape than a corriedale. I look forward to weaving it eventually. I would definitly buy it again.
Beautiful fiber, slightly coarse, but nice to spin and great preparation as always!
Not a problem! Easy to place order and super fast shipping! Hope you guys restock soon!
The Gotland wool is both silky and more course than some wools, but that sheen is just plain worth it. And there is a softness along with having a higher micron count. You just have to feel it to understand. And the color is lovely. I haven't spun it yet, but can't wait.
