Long time knitter, very new spinner
17 September 2023  | 

I'm not new to wool and very used to often strong lanolin smell. I've only filled a drop spindle about
5 times now. This Southdown does not have that strong smell. It is shorter staple than the wools I've worked so far, but that has worked well for me. It's lovely warm white, soft, and easy to pull into manageable sizes.
I've spun some others of unknown varieties which either smelled still but handled well because the grease helped the grip or smelled very little and the fiber seemed to tangle and catch constantly. I look forward to plying and working with this yarn and may well have found my new go to breed.
