Grading Wool – SSW 2014 & Local Romney Just Received

Just arrived last weekend, though not Shetland wool, a sweet Romney wool fleece (okay, four fleeces), sourced locally (Covered Bridge Farm, Scio, OR – so just down I-5 corridor). Supporting wool farmers is what I love to do!  

Romney is such a versatile wool.  Not fine like merino, but not as rustic as Icelandic.  Medium.  It’s the Goldilocks of “just right.” 

Makes a beautiful yarn for a jumper, hat or fingerless mitts.  Give it a spin!!!

I found this older video from SSW 2014.  

Oliver Henry explaining the wool grading process.  Posted on YouTube by Shetland Amenity Trust.

He’s such a delight to listen to.
