A breed developed in Australia, by breeding a quarter Lincoln and three quarter Merino. A southern hemisphere breed now mainly found in Australia, New Zealand and the Falkland Islands. A few flocks to be found in other parts.
We source from carefully selected Falkland fleeces to get the better micron count wools.
A great wool often overlooked as its a great alternative to Merino. It has a similar micron count to merino though the Polwarth has a little more "bulk" to it, giving the appearance of being a fluffier fibre. It is also a very good white.
Very good for felting and spinning. Dyes well with Landscape dyes.
Staple Length: 100mm approx
Micron Count: 21 approx
