Item details

Organic Polwarth wool top from the Falkland Islands.The wool was selected from two family farms on the islands and measures an incredible 22 microns. The fleeces were processed in the UK. Sheep that are raised organically are not subject to mulesing, and they are not dipped for pesticides. In addition, the number of sheep allowed to graze in any give pasture area is limited to the natural carrying capacity of the land. And as with most wool that comes from the Falklands, it is very white, so it takes dye wonderfully.

It is absolutely marvellous to spin; it's so soft. Treat yourself to a little!

We do our best to photograph our items accurately, but please bear in mind that color settings can vary from monitor to monitor, so some discrepancy between the digital image and the physical item is common.

We use professional grade acid dyes. The photo is a representation of the color way and not necessarily the one you will receive. Each 4 oz of fiber is dyed individually, so no two are going to be exactly alike. All units are approximately 4 oz unless specified otherwise.

When you set the twist or wash your handspun, you may see some color release, usually if there is a high concentration of blue or red/magenta. Don't panic! It will be fine. You can add a few tablespoons of white vinegar to the bath if you are concerned.

Please read our shipping policies before you order, especially if you are in another country.
