Herdwick #7

Herdwick is a sheep not known for its fleece – this is sturdy stuff.  It makes fantastic tweed and overcoats – Beatrix Potter used her flock’s wool for her suits.  It’s great for rugs, does tend to be kempy.  But has a really lovely gray coloring.  This fleece does have some matting at the butt end but it opens up with little difficulty, especially after a good scour.  The staple length is particularly long, so the butt was not unexpected.   It has light to moderate FM and cleans to  a lovely grey tweed. There is some mating dye left but it will wash out.

Ave staple 5″

Price is per ounce. 4 ounce minimum purchase.
