1 oz of Irish Country Sheep (Landschaf) Wool
Black Brown, Rough, 34 mic
only conditionally suitable for felting
This wool is not dyed. It is in it's natural color straight from the sheep, therefore a slight difference will always be expected, as no two sheep are truly the same.
If you are looking for larger amounts, please refer to our special order catalogue.
Check out our sampler box with this and 5 other, natural (undyed) fibers.
Although most people would call this a roving, it is in fact called Top.
The difference is the process it has gone through and the purpose it serves.
A Top has been carded and then combed to make all the fibers smooth and parallel. Wool Top is perfect for worsted or semi worsted spinning.
A Roving on the other hand has been taken from a carded batt (a blanket of interlocked and naturally crimped fiber) and not combed, and then pulled through a small hole in order to make a long continuous cord. A Roving is best for woolen spinning.
