Item details

This wool originates from Skudde sheep bred in a natural way, without the use of artificial animal feed, by an amateur breeder in Tuscany.
The wool is soft to the touch, suitable for knitting, crochet or weaving.
The color is natural brown, a color of the coat of this ancient breed which is considered a direct descendant of the first domesticated sheep. It is also known as Viking's sheep.
Skeins of about 110 grams. Available: 3

From the sheep to the yarn ...
I take personally care of the entire production process, from the sheep to the yarn.
I start choosing the fleeces of sheep in early summer when they are sheared, then I wash and air-dry them.
When the wool is dried, the fibers are gently teased with the fingers and any plant residues are removed, then the wool is carded using a pair of carding combs. Finally the wool is ready to be spun!
Usually, I use a treadle spinning wheel, very old but still perfectly working. Sometimes I use the drop spindle.
The yarn obtained can be used as is or in pairs and twisted to have a two ply yarn.
All the wool originate from sheep naturally grazing by responsible breeders.

All yarn colors are natural, e.g. white for the Sardinian and amiatina sheep; black, brown, tobacco or white for Skudde sheep. The shade of color may differ slightly from what appears in the picture.

Small irregularities are not defects but a characteristic of the handspun yarn.
