Ile-de-France (Rustic Roving)
Ile-de-France (Rustic Roving)
Classification: FINEWOOL Thick and chunky rustic roving. Our current batch has a moderate amount of vegetation. Ivory-cream in colour, with lots of bounce and loft. Ile-de-France was intentionally bred as a meat sheep in France in the early to mid 1800s and is a relatively new introduction to North American shepherds. With Merino in the bloodlines, this fibre should be interesting to experiment with. This source is not as fine as most Merino but could be ideal for warm and cozy socks, midrange or outerwear. Staple length of this roving is around 2.5 to 3 inches. Likely in the 25 to 30 micron range. Excellent felting properties. An excellent core wool for needle-felting.

Karakul – Grey (Top)
Karakul – Grey (Top)
Classification: DUAL-COATED Combed top with little to no veg. It's said that Karakul is one of the oldest-known breeds of sheep, and pelts from the lambs are what made those Persian lamb coats our grandmothers all wore. This lovely top is ash grey liberally sprinkled with darker grey and black hairs. We suspect this is among the softest Karakul fibre around, making it useful for outerwear and scarves as well as the typical carpets and household items. Micron count is typically in the 30s or higher, with a staple length of 6 to 12 inches. Felting properties are good. PRODUCT of UNITED KINGDOM
