Wingham Wool

A breed developed in Australia, by breeding a quarter Lincoln and three quarters Merino. We source from carefully selected Falkland fleeces to get the better micron count wools.

A great wool often overlooked, Polwarth makes a fantastic alternative to Merino. It has a similar micron count to merino though has a little more "bulk" to it, giving the appearance of being a fluffier fibre. A very clear white, Polwarth spins well, is great to needle felt and wet felts like a dream. We really like Polwarth... Can you tell?

Staple Length: 100mm approx
Micron Count: 21 approx

Lovely clean soft fibre v.good

I love Polwarth! Lovely clean soft fibre from Wingham- posted quickly and packaged well by Tom (I love the little packing notes that says who sorted my order!) I love Winghams service they are always quick and helpful too. I’m making a jumper from this fibre (hopefully)

The first time I have used this fibre. It is very similar to merino and is felting very well. I would order again.
