These special hand dyed combed wool tops are 100% Tasmanian Heritage English Leicester grown by non-mulsed, Rare Breed sheep from ASSBA flock No. 395 from Wanstead Park Campbell Town, in the Northern Midlands of Tasmania Australia. Scoured and combed in Victoria, the result is an elegant and lustrous fibre of long staple length suited to hand spinning and felting.
Whilst not as soft as Merino, if spun woollen style it will make lovely and durable sweaters, cardigans, vest etc. It is ideal for Aran style knitting with cables and twists accentuated by the lovely lustre for which English Leicester fibre is renown. If spun semi worsted and finely, it will suit laceweight shawls and wraps.
Typically the fibres measure 32-38 microns
Hand wash finished items.
English Leicester sheep have been farmed in Tasmania since the mid 1820's.
