Great customer service

I enjoy coming into the store more than the on line because of the people and the touching the fiber. I return this wool for yarn.

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

Our lustrous White Masham Wool has a 38-44 Micron count and a superb staple length of 6-15 inches. This lustrous fiber is a delight for new spinners, and is best spun with only a slight twist as too much will result in a very coarse yarn, similar to Wensleydale. You won't be able to get enough of this ultra-soft roving.

A successful crossbreed between either a Teeswater or Wensleydale ram with a Dalesbred or Swaydale Ewe results in this scrumptious and pearly fiber. 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.
