Beautiful To Spin & Spins Up Beautifully!

This wool is gorgeous. It spun up fast, lofty, thin, soft, and easily. Although it can be dyed, I plan to ply it with “A Song of Wool and Silk - Not Today (brown), and then weave a scarf. i love it!

Product Details

Organic Polwarth Wool Top

100% Certified Organic Polwarth Wool Top

Originally from the great land down under. This Australian breed was first developed in Victoria in the 1880s by crossing Lincolns with Merinos. Today, the Polwarth breed is 1/4 Lincoln and 3/4 Merino with the majority of the breed hailing from Australia. This wool, however, was selected from two family farms on the Falkland Islands and measures an incredible 22 microns. Sheep that are raised organically are not subject to mulesing, and they are not dipped for pesticides. In addition, the number of sheep allowed to graze in any give pasture area is limited to the natural carrying capacity of the land. And as with most wool that comes from the Falklands, it is very white.

Noted for its elasticity and durability, it is still considered a delicate fiber with bounce and drape. Your finished projects weather spinning, weaving, felting, knitting, crocheting, etc. will last generations with this resilient and soft fiber.
