I find this easier to spin than merino. A subtle but beautiful fiber. This organic Polwarth is 22 microns and has amazing bounce. It Polwarth is a breed of sheep that was developed in Australia in the late 1800's they are 3/4 merino blood lines and 1/4 lincoln. it has the hand and softness of merino and a slight luster of lincoln .
The wool was selected from two family farms on the Falkland islands( UK) and measures an incredible 22 microns. Sheep that are raised organically are not subject to mulesing, and they are not dipped for pesticides.
Blended with tussah silk, this is a lovely blend!!
Our fibers are dyed by hand with colorfast commercial dyes for a one-of-a-kind appearance.
I take great care to make sure that dye is sufficiently exhausted and heat set the fibers so there is minimal to no run-off. However, due to differences in water across the globe, what runs clear for me may bleed a little for you. Please take care to hand wash your finished item in cool water and lay flat to dry. I also make every attempt possible to use a photograph that is as true as possible to the real color. Monitor settings may vary.
