This is an undyed roving in a 50/50 blend of natural brown and white wool. This is a soft, medium grade Corriedale that should be especially good for felting.
Corriedale is a sheep breed that was developed during the industrial revolution for the sweater trade. They needed a fiber that was a little longer than Merino for the machines, so they crossed Merino with the long-haired Lincoln to produce a new breed: Corriedale. Today, Corriedale can be quite varied, as Merino is crossed back into the breed to soften it..
We have prepackaged these rovings in 6 ounce bags, but larger quantities are available. Convo us to request a custom amount.
Fiber: Corriedale wool
