Fine Mid-Brown Masham
$.12 / gram

The Masham, pronounced massam, is a cross of Teeswater or Wensleydale ram with Dalesbred or Swaledale ewes. The fleece is very long and lustrous and the breed is found mainly in the north of England. The fleece is suited to combing due to its length and is used in speciality products due to its limited availability. The fineness varies from approx. 38- 44microns and length approx. 150-380mm.

Masham fibre feels quite different to most sheep wool – it is not as bouncy as more common breeds, but what this fibre lacks in bounce it makes up for in drape and shine! Similar to Wensleydale it has a delicate halo.

1005 Natural Grey Gotland Top milled in Great Britain

The Gotland is a native breed of Sweden; one of the oldest sheep breeds. The breed has been exported and small flocks can be found in other countries, including Norway, Denmark, the UK and USA. The breed is now predominantly medium grey colour and is commonly known as the Swedish Pelt Sheep. Lambs-wool of this breed is in demand for its softness and lustre, being long enough to be combed. The fleece is also quite curly and similar in some ways to mohair. The fibre fineness ranges from 30- 44microns with the lambs-wool at the finer end. The length is approx. 80-150mm.

  • Gotland wool; silky, lustrous, purling locks for spinning & a favourite wool of felters.
  • Gotland pelt; prized world-wide.
