Item details

Polwarth Tussah Silk Blended Roving Combed Top Wool. AR000124.

This is a glorious fine Polwarth Tussah Silk Blended Top. 85% Polwarth and 15% Tussah (bleached) Silk. This is an 8 oz listing. This is next to the skin luxury.

The Polwarth breed was developed in Australia by crossing merino rams to Merino/Lincoln ewes, with a goal of improving meat production while maintaining high-quality fleeces. The result is that Polwarth fleeces are very even, soft-feeling, and lovely to work with in any form. They are not classed as a "beginner" wool because they are so fine. They can be used as an introduction to a fine wool like Merino or Rambouillet because of their longer staple.

Staple on this Polwarth Silk blended top is 4-5 inches with a micron count of 23 and spinning count of 58s-62s. This fiber is superb next to the skin soft, as well as with sufficient twist in the yarn, it can also be a durable yarn for nice everyday wear.

The white ecru of this wool top takes the dye well. The fleece is elastic, resilient, and lofty even when spun worsted. It is known for good draping qualities and bounce.

Fast delivery, and so soft and fluffy I hate to put it down! Thank you! I also wanted to mention that I am learning about wools, and order a great deal of them. The fact that you label what is in a bag is a joy for me, so I wont forget what is what! Thank you, Shay
