Product Description

454g (1 lb)

Pälsfår sheep hail from the Swedish Gotland islands and have a fine, long, lustrous, and dense grey fleece.

Their fleece is quite curly, and is in many ways similar to mohair. Loved by hand-spinners, Gotland lambs-wool produces a yarn ideal for knitting and is great to felt. If you are looking to make authentic Norse viking garments, this is the fibre for you!

Sliver may contain some vegetable matter.

30-34μ thick; 150-175mm staple length

  1. Beautiful but a bit challenging 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Jan 2021

    This was the first fibre I tried spinning, which was perhaps not a good decision. It likes to fall apart, the staple length is on the long side, and it felts incredibly easily.

    That said, it's beautiful stuff. Makes a pretty salt and pepper yarn, with a silvery sheen to it. It's kind of messy and it takes a while to get the hang of spinning it, but it's worth it!

    No VM, moderate sheep smell, not too much lanolin.
