100% Polwarth wool, 22-23 micron. Soft, fluffy. Cold handwash recommended. Polwarth is a breed of sheep that was developed in Victoria (Australia) during 1880. They were of one-quarter Lincoln and three-quarters Merino bloodlines. They are large, predominantly polled sheep with long, soft, quite fine wool and produce good meat carcases. For the spinners, Polwarth has become a popular fleece type, easier to prepare and spin than Merino, yet with a similar softness and handle.
