COMMENTS FROM WOOL BUYERS

Hey, 

I just wanted to let you know that I’ve washed that wool and i love it. I’ve been learning the hand carding process. Not that I’m an expert, but tell Starfish she grew some nice fleece.
Ryan


I thought I would let you know that the wool arrived yesterday.  It is beautiful.  Now I am not sure I want to use such lovely wool for the verefelder.  I might just go with shetland or Icelandic for the cloak and keep the gotland for my personal use.
Anita


Thank you so much for sending the fleece so quickly.  It arrived safe and sound, but I’ve been away for a bit.  I’ve been in the process of washing a couple small batches and oh, my, goodness!  Attached you’ll find a picture of the most recent.  This is the fleece from Moose Moose’s rear end area —– I would never have guessed how lovely it would be, based on the raw state.  What a magical surprise!!  It’s soft, silky, bouncy, and perfect off white in color.  If this is the ‘rear end’, I can only imagine what the other more curly finer locks will look and feel like.  I have to take care so that matting doesn’t occur more within those lanolin rich curly, thick locks.
Tonight is my spinning interest group’s monthly meeting  and I’m going to bring a batch, raw and washed — I’ll be keeping a close eye so that none of it slips into someone else’s stash!  and I’ll be sharing your information with them.
Thank you for all the care, love, and hard work you give to these wonderful animals.  I hope my spinning, knitting, and weaving do it justice.
best wishes,
Chillon

BREED PRICE* WOOL COLOR TYPE ABOUT THE BREED 
Blue Faced Leicester $20.00 / lb  White LW  They have curly threadlike wool which makes it considerably lighter than others. Some fleeces only weigh 1 to 3 kg (2.2 to 6.6 lb).  These particular kind of sheep have no wool on the head or neck, although the pattern and shape of the wool is most like the Wensleydale.
Border Leicester $17.50 / lb  White LW  Their white wool tends to be very long and by Merino standards, broad crimped (about 32 to 38 microns), and is used for medium to heavy weight garments. This wool, though, is prized by spinners because of the crimp and lustre. The sheep are normally shorn twice a year when the wool has reached a length of around 100 mm (3.9 in). Lambs when shorn have an average of 1.8 kg (4.0 lb) of wool; yearlings have a larger body and can have as much as 3.2 kg (7.1 lb) at each shearing
Corriedale $15.00 / lb White, Grey, Brown & Black Medium to
LW 
 Corriedales produce a thick stapled, bulky fleece, which is popular with spinners and can be used for a range of handspun garments. Their dense fleece is medium-fine and high yielding, with good length and softness, somewhat between medium wool and long wool. The Corriedale produces bulky, high-yielding wool ranging from 31.5 to 24.5 microns[2] diameter. Fleece from a mature ewe will weigh 10 to 17 lb (4.5 to 7.7 kg) with a staple length of 3.5 to 6.0 in (8.9 to 15 cm). After cleaning, a yield of 50 to 60% of the raw fleece weight is common.
Cotswold $28.00 / lb White LW  To the casual observer, the external appearance of the Cotswold and Lincoln is similar, but there are several differences that are apparent. The Cotswolds are somewhat smaller than the Lincoln, although mature rams in good condition will weigh about 300 pounds and ewes usually around 200 pounds. Cotswolds carry more foretop than do Lincolns, and the fleece is carried in rather bold locks and is usually from eight to ten inches in length. The fleece grades braid but is somewhat finer and softer than that found on the average Lincoln. The fleece parts along the back, is rather open and in hard cold rains does not offer a great deal of protection to the sheep. The average ewe flock will shear about twelve pounds annually, while rams should shear appreciably more wool. The fleece of the Cotswold is white.
Finn $30.00 / lb Brown SH  The fleece from a mature ewe will range in weight from four to eight pounds (1.8 to 3.6 kg) with a high yield percentage.  The fleeces have a numerical count of 50 to 60 or 23.5 to 31.0 microns with a staple length of three to six inches (7.5-15 cm).  While white is the predominate fleece color on the breed in the North America, they are found in a number of natural colors in Finnland.
American
Gotland
$33.00 / lb  Light Grey, Medium Grey, Dark Grey OR Charcoal LW  The fleece is fine, long, lustrous and dense and can be all shades of grey from silver to charcoal grey and dark enough to be almost black. They have a clearly defined even curl (purl) and staple that is soft to the touch. Their disposition is docile and friendly. The fleece is typically 29 to 34 micrometres in diameter. Lambswool can be in the low to mid 20s micrometre range. The fleece is prized in the United States by hand-spinners and in Europe they are most desired for their pelts.
Icelandic $15.00 / lb  Tan, Mixture of White + Black LW  Icelandic fleece is dual-coated. In Icelandic the long outer coat is called tog and the fine inner coat þel. When separated, the outer and inner coats are used for different woolen products.
Lincoln $14.00 / lb  White LW  The Lincoln, sometimes called the Lincoln Longwool, is a breed of sheep from England. The Lincoln is the largest British sheep, developed specifically to produce the heaviest, longest and most lustrous fleece of any breed in the world. The versatile fleece is in great demand for spinning, weaving and many other crafts.
Polypay $16.00 / lb  White MED  The Polypay is a synthetic breed, developed in the 1970’s at the U.S. Sheep Experiment Station in Dubois, Idaho, and Nicholas Farms at Sonoma, California. Targhee x Dorset and Rambouillet x Finnsheep crosses were mated to form a 4-breed composite that could produce two lamb crops and one wool crop per year.
Romney $18.00 / lb  Light Grey
MED  The fleece or wool of the Romney sheep is prized for its quality and is particularly sought by hand spinners. The natural color of the wool ranges from a light cream to nearly black.  The Romney sheep is considered one of the most prolific wool-producing breeds, with ewes producing an average of 10 pounds each year. Common uses for Romney wool include sweaters, coats and carpets.
Wenslydale $19.00 / lb  White, Brown, Mixture of Brown + Black LW The Wensleydale is a large longwool sheep with a distinctive deep blue head, ears and legs. The breed’s greatest attribute is the quality and quantity of curly wool each sheep produces. Wool from the Wensleydale is acknowledged as the finest lustre long wool in the world. The fleece from a purebred sheep is considered kemp free.
Karakul 31.00 / lb  Mixture of Brown & Black
LW The Karakul may be the oldest breed of domesticated sheep. Archeological evidence indicates the existence of the Persian lambskin as early as 1400 B.C. and carvings of a distinct Karakul type have been found on ancient Babylonian temples.  They were also a source of milk, meat, tallow, and wool, a strong fiber that is felted into fabric or woven into carpeting.
