This is a fun one! This Eider wool top is about 3″ long and 27-31 microns. It’s super crimpy and puffy and fun to spin. This particular top is fine for an Eider wool, but still on the coarser side for Hello Yarn fibers. Use it for socks or mittens or hats or outwear sweaters. It will wear well.
The wool comes from a sheep called a German Whiteheaded Mutton, which was bred to withstand harsh weather along the North Sea, particularly along dikes where they keep the grass down and encourage more grass growth, which helps stabilize the dikes. Thanks, sheep!
