Long draw fans, do I have a treat for you…..this domestic wool from small farms in New England, scoured, carded, and pulled into sliver. So fun to spin into bouncy lofty yarn, and the natural oatmeal color adds a great depth to the colors.
These do contain some VM (vegetable matter such as hay….sheep gotta eat!), and some neps and noils from the shearing and minimal processing. Most of the VM falls out when spinning, and the rest plus neps can be either pulled out easily, or left in for a charming rustic texture. You can see my assessment and spinning of this wool here.
