Charollais (Rustic Roving)


Classification: DOWN-TYPE WOOL?

Thick and chunky rustic roving with a moderate amount of veg. Staple length is short, only about 2 to 2.5 inches. A fairly soft and bouncy ivory-white fibre. This appears to be a meat sheep originally from France, introduced to North America relatively recently. It likely lends itself best to woolen-style spinning for midrange garments, but be aware that the staple length is short.

Micron counts are in the 23 to 27 range. Wet-felting properties are probably average but it’s hard to find any reference. A good core wool for needle-felting.
