About the fibre

Staple length: 80-120mm. Micron count 25-30

Fine to Medium

Corriedale is a versatile wool with a good crimp and a soft handle. It is excellent for needle felting, as has a springy texture that is gentle on the needles.

We also carry Corriedale fibre in a range of dyed colours.

Each bag contains 100g of wool.

Origin: United Kingdom

About the breed

In New Zealand and Australia, from about 1870 to about 1910, farmers worked to develop a sheep breed that would produce a long staple wool, could thrive in low-rainfall conditions, and would also be economically viable as a meat sheep. Their result was the Corriedale, a large, docile, hornless sheep who was essentially a cross between Merino (the softest sheep), with Lincoln (who grow glossy, long wool).
