Great wool

Cheviot dyed up less vibrant than other breeds but I loved the way this turned out. I split it into 5 sections and dyed each a different colorway. I love the subtle colors and it spins up easily! I use mine for socks since it is such a sturdy fiber and yarn

Product Details

Cheviot Wool top in a beautiful natural white/ecru color.  Helical crimp - 3 dimensional structures that gives the wool resilience and bounce.  The micron count is 29 and this fiber has a 4-5 inch staple length.  The wool top is open without being slippery making it an excellent wool for beginning spinners.  The yarn produced from Cheviot wool is a pleasure to knit, crochet and weave with. 1 lb. equals about 20 yards.

HISTORY:

Cheviot sheep originated in the Cheviot Hills on the border of England and Scotland.  They were referred to as the Border Cheviot and are the foundation stock for the Brecknock and the North Country Cheviots.  This hardy breed can withstand harsh environments and are known for being great mothers.  Cheviot tweeds are a traditional woven fabric, famous for their crispness and durability, making it a popular suiting material for both men and women.
