Australian Polwarth wool is soft, high yielding, well crimped, 24 micron with a 10-12 cm staple.
Soft. Bright. Perfect for next-to-skin pieces.

Available in 200gram (7 ounce) skeins from the 2017 spin batch.

This yarn is from our Blue Dot Flock. These are the direct descendants of the original Polwarth flock established on our farm in the mid-1800s.

Undyed. The natural wool colours are taupe & dark brown.

The white is great for dyeing with vibrant colours, while the taupe and even the dark brown will create rich over-dyed effects.

Worsted spun creating smooth easy to knit fibres.
