The fleece of the Scandinavian Gotland sheep is in high demand for its softness and lustre. The fibre is long enough to be combed but is also quite curly and similar, in some ways, to mohair. The fibre fineness ranges from 30 to 44 microns, with the lambs-wool at the finer end. The staple length is approximately 80-150mm.
This fibre is perfect for hand spinning, hand felting and many other craft uses.
