Our beautiful rare breed longwool sheep produce amazing lustre long staple wool, which has been commercially spun for us into 3 ply double knitting weight yarn by Curlew Weavers in mid-Wales.
Lincoln Longwool is renown for taking dyes well and for felting. We have hand-dyed our wool with amazing results and had lots of fun felting it for soaps and slippers.
The hanks have been wound into "cake" balls for easy knitting (start from the centre of the ball) or can be purchased as twisted hanks which are easier for dyeing (untwist to form a loop before dyeing). If you prefer to use a hank please contact Lynn here when making your purchase.
As this is a natural product it should not be washed in on a standard cycle in a washing machine or dried in a tumble dryer. Please see this link for wool care advice.
