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.
