This listing is for one ounce of combed top. The wool comes from a pool of various sheep on our farm who have black colored wool. These sheep include all of the black rams, I don't like to process ram wool by hand so it gets processed at the mill. Also includes wool from any of the more senior ewes in the flock as well as good quality skirtings from the very fine fleeces.
This is the natural color of the sheep, no dyes are used to create the color.
We used Zeilinger Wool to process hit combed top and it is lovely - very clean and nicely aligned for a good worsted spin.
We put coats on our sheep so the fiber is very clean.
We breed for very fine shetland sheep, micron count around 20 - 25. This fiber feels very fine and bouncy. I am unable to provide accurate micron information as it comes from a pooling of a variety of sheep.
If you order more than 1 oz, I will pull it off the master roll as one long rope unless you ask me to measure it out into individual balls. I will tag the end so you can find it easily. If you order multiple colors, I will package separate colors in different baggies with the end tagged.
