Finnsheep or Finnish Landrace, as they are known in their native country of Finland are considered to be several hundred years old, descending from the Mouflon that live in the wild on Sardinia and Corsica and also said to be related to other Scandinavian short-tailed sheep.
These sheep are known to be prolific breeders almost having litters than the standard one or two lambs. Finn sheep have been popular with breeders cross breeding with other sheep due to this fact. I however have greatly enjoyed the cross wools I've tried such as CVM/Finn or a Romney/Finn also found in TheFibreMine. I'll share.
These exceptional raw locks are a fabulous natural cream colour. Staple length is about 3 to 6 inches and 24 to 31 microns. Finn wool is at the finer end of medium wools.
Truly a spinners delight!
Offered in 1 oz. portions.

Beautiful wool. I had no idea that Fin wool was so soft and fine. I expected something more like shetland or icelandic. But I love it! After getting this sampling of wool, I think I might just have to start a Finnish Landrace flock of my very own. Thanks for the inspiration.
Seller was helpful in answering questions. Packaging and shipping very good.
Given the wide variation in shipping costs, I have the high end listed as a safeguard for my costs. If for example someone were to purchase 2 ounces of fleece the shipping cost would be representative of actual. If someone purchased 12 ounces of fleece the shipping cost would likely be too high. For any shipping overages of $2 or more than the actual shipping cost, I will happily refund the difference, and have done so for any applicable sales. Please convo me if you wish to have a custom listing set up for specific purchases and possible combined shipping costs.
