Dorset - Canadian

Classification: DOWN-TYPE WOOL

Thick and chunky rustic roving with a moderate amount of veg. Staple length is about 4 inches. A fairly soft and bouncy ivory-cream fibre with a medium staple and high crimp that lends itself best to woolen-style spinning for midrange and outerwear garments. Dorset and Suffolk-Dorset are one of the most common meat sheep breeds in Canada. The wool is often sent overseas before being made into yarn or felt and sold back to the North American market.

Micron count is usually in the 27 to 32 range. Wet-felting properties are very low, and because of that Dorset is sometimes recommended for garments where shrinkage could be a factor, particularly socks. A good core wool for needle-felting.
