Suffolk (Rustic Roving)
Classification: DOWN BREED
Thick and chunky Rustic Roving, with a moderate amount of vegetation debris. Creamy-white in colour with mottlings of darker shades here and there. Suffolk is the most common breed in North America, used widely for meat production. This is a versatile fibre with low-lustre wool but plenty of loft for good insulating value. Great for mittens, socks, outerwear and rugged sweaters.
Micron count is in the range of 25 to 33, with a staple length around 2 to 3.5 inches. Wet-felting properties are poor. An excellent core wool for needle-felting.
