About the fibre

Staple length 4-6cm. Micron count 29-31.

Although the staple length is on the shorter side -- approximately 4-6cm -- the wool has quite a "springy" quality, and so should not present a problem to intermediate spinners.

An excellent choice for dyeing or felting.

Natural white. Part of Romni’s breed-specific collection for hand spinners and fibre artists. Sold in bags containing 100g of wool.

Origin: United Kingdom
