This batch comes from four individuals: One ewe and her lamb which are crossbred Gotland and Helsinge sheep One ewe and her lamb from a different herd, which is pure Gotland
These sheep all live within a few kilometres from my home, so I see them now and then and can give them extra apples or grass.
Gotland wool is shiny, dense and stands wear well. The Helsinge crossbreed adds some softness to this blend, and the colour is slightly lighter than a traditional Gotland.
All of the wool is from the shearing of the fall 2016. Both ewes were last sheared 6 months earlier. For the lambs, it was their first shearing. Average fibre length is 10 cm / 4 inches. The fibre has been gently washed and carded and then spun into yarn at Ull i Väst, Sweden.
The knitted fabric from this yarn i surprisingly soft, and a beautiful grey melange - like granite rocks.
