Item details

Polwarth Spinning Top. 8 oz. AR0001BSF.

Polwarth White Wool. It is perfect for wool spinning Fiber. It can be used as a blending fiber or as the base for a blended fiber batt. Needle Felting projects will be a dream with this white shiny fleece. It could make some lovely floating clouds is a needle felting tapestry.

The Polwarth breed was developed in Australia by crossing merino rams to Merino/Lincoln ewes. The goal was to improve meat production while maintaining high-quality fleeces. The result is the Polwarth fleece. It is very even, soft-feeling. It is absolutely lovely to work with in any form. Polwarth is not classed as a "beginner" wool because it is so fine. It does have a longer staple so less experienced spinners may find it easier to spin than a shorter staple Merino. It can be used as an introduction to fine wools like Merino or Rambouillet.

Staple length with Polwarth combed top is 4-5 inches long. It has a micron count of 23 and spinning count of 58s-62s. This fiber is superb next to the skin soft. It is pure luxury to spin this into a fine yarn and make a lacey shawl. It can also be a durable yarn for nice every day wear if sufficient twist is put in the yarn during the spinning and plying process.

The white ecru of this wool top takes dye and color well. The fleece is elastic, resilient, and lofty even when spun worsted. It is known for good draping qualities and bounce. Ecru white fiber like Polwarth can be dyed into a rainbow of colors. If you like a bright lovely white, Polwarth is the fiber for you.
