Item details

Gotland wool is fine, long, lustrous and dense and can be all shades of grey from silver to charcoal and dark enough to be almost black.

The fiber has a clearly defined even curl and staple that is soft to the touch. The fleece is typically 29 to 35 microns in diameter. Lambs wool can be in the low to mid 20's micron range. Traditionally a dual purpose sheep, this fiber was established by the Vikings by crossing Karkul, Ramnov and native Swedish sheep. These three blends created the Gotland sheep with a surprisingly long staple length of 6.5 inches. Gotland is usually used an outer wear fiber.

Gotland wool felts easily with a smooth surface and strong hold, even when lightly felted. This is what makes Gotland wool the "felter's favorite".

Gotland wool is strong, lustrous and smooth when spun worsted and is light and soft when spun into a lofty woolen yarn. Traditional Gotland Gray is a rich blue-grey color that does not discolor in sun exposure.

Exactly what I expected. Looking forward to blending and then spinning it.
