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.

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.

Product Details

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.
