More Details


This Corriedale cross has all the characteristics of a natural Corriedale wool, but has been cross bred to create a softer wool.  The Corriedale breed hails originally from Australia and New Zealand where farmers decided to cross Merino ewes with Lincoln or Leicester males.  These sheep are now raised worldwide.  The fleeces are densely packed but each fiber is thicker than its Merino counterpart.  Corriedale Cross has a beautiful natural luster to it.  With an almost white/ecru natural color, a long staple length, and a definite crimp this wool is perfect for beginner and advanced spinners.  This fiber is soft!  Perfect for dying projects or felting projects.  The average micron count for fibers is between 25 and 32. 

This fiber is perfect for needle felting!  The springy texture and individual large diameters of the fibers make it easier for the needle barbs to catch the fibers . Adding corriedale to a wet felting project helps slow the felting process giving you more control over the final result, also making the finished wet felted project more bulky.

My go to

This corrie X is my go to fiber for all of my Intro to Spinning: Drop Spindles classes. My students love it and it really is the perfect fiber for hand spinners no matter your skill level! It has enough "grab" to it, yet it so soft and lofty that you can spin any weight you want!

Nice for beginners

This is an easy fiber to spin. You can separate it into smaller width and focus on drafting and getting consistent singles with this roving. I did find a few spots of gnarls that i just picked out as i spun.

Good Spinning Fiber

I would buy this again

This wool was soft, very very clean, smelled good and spun up easily and quickly. I am very pleased with the product and the company was easy to deal with. My order was here in just a very few days and I live high in the Rocky Mts in a tiny town of 3000 res. The wool is a beautiful off white color, not yellowish. After I washed it to set the twist, it fluffed out beautifully. I will order from Paradise again, definitely. I used to raise angora goats and merino sheep and I know what quality wool looks like and feels like. This product is TOP NOTCH!!!!!!! Oh, also, the staple length was about 5 inches. Perfect.

Corriedale Cross

Love this fiber for dying! Then it’s my favorite base for blending and making art yarn batts!
