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.
