About the fibre

Staple length: 50-75mm. Micron count 25-30

Fine to Medium

Scoured, uncarded Corriedale wool. For felting, or for special spinning projects with texture. Natural white; each bag contains 100g of wool.

Combing and carding are essential parts of preparing a fleece for spinning into a uniformly aligned yarn, but these locks have a purpose, too! Excellent for making dolls' hair, curly fur for felted critters, or for adding a natural texture to any felting project. Spinning from these is possible, but not recommended for beginners.

A part of Romni’s special wool fibres collection for hand spinners and fibre artists. For more information about Corriedale sheep, see the description in the Undyed Corriedale Wool Top listing.

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).
