Masham is a fine example of a successful crossbreed. A result of breeding either a Teeswater or Wensleydale ram with a Dalesbred or Swaydale Ewe. Over 100 years ago in the northern hills of England the idea for this crossbreed began with the goal of creating a heartier and healthier breed. The result is Lustrous fiber with a superb staple length of 6-15 inches. A great fiber for new spinners, like wensleydale this wool is best spun with only a slight twist as too much will result in a very coarse yarn. 

29-34 Microns.

Surprisingly soft

I have never spun this wool before. So didn’t really know what to expect. Paradise Fiber offered a pound of it for $15.- so I decided to give it a try. It has a loooong staple and feels surprisingly soft. Easy to spin, would be good for beginners. Very pleased with my purchase and the fast shipping.

Looks gorgeous!

I haven’t had a chance to spin any of the Marshak yet but it looks beautiful. It’s a new breed for me, I heard it mentioned on a podcast and had to get some.

I love Masham

Yes, its micron count is not that small, but this fiber is very smooth for wool. It is lustrous and silky. I spin it with just enough twist to make a strong string as I'm spinning, then ply 2 strands together. The result is gorgeous yarn - I can't stop touching it. It's easy to make thin yarn with Masham, but it will be denser than millspun yarn. Great for lace and stranded knitting.

Strong wool

This wool has lasted me a while. Its definitely not soft, but is a great strong wool.

Masham and Herdwick

I've only played with the masham a little, but it's so gorgeous I can hardly wait to dive in seriously. And the herdwick is kempy, as I expected, so that's going to fun to prep. And what a delightful gray!
