Southdown Wool from the South Downs

Single Flock - Woollen Spun - Small Batch


Woollen spun

Southdown fleeces produce fibres of various lengths. When they are carded (rather than combed) the fibres go in many different directions. You may notice fine fibres sticking out of the finished yarn sometimes referred to as ‘fuzziness’; this is a natural feature of these yarns. This method of preparing the fibre for spinning means that there is more space for air between the fibres making yarn that is extra warm to wear. The spinning method and natural crimp creates a yarn with bounce, perfect for knitting shawls, hats, and mittens!
