My Ashford products are all new in the box or package, unless specified otherwise.
I am an avid spinner and love exploring different fibers, mixing fibers, spinning novelty yarns and experimenting with natural and other dyes and dying methods.
I hand washed this gorgeous Perendale lamb fleece.The Perendale is a breed of sheep developed in New Zealand by Massey Agricultural College (now Massey University) for use in steep hill situations. It was developed by breeding Romney ewes and Cheviot rams for raisin in the hill country. The breed has diminished since the 1980s and is rather rare. Perendales are a dual-purpose sheep producing wool fibres of 28–32 micrometres (0.0011–0.0013 in) diameter with a 125 millimetres (4.9 in) staple length. This fleece is from a lamb and is therefore at the lower end of the micron scale. It is very white and very soft, and has little to no VM. It has a nice crimp and the average staple length is just under 5".
