Gotland Top

$.09 / gram

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.
