Wensleydale Longwool Top Ecru description:
It's no wonder Wensleydale wool fiber is a favorite among spinners. With such wonderful characteristics as lustrous sheen and smooth long locks it makes incredible yarn. The average staple length ranges from 8–12 inches. It is well suited for spinning from the fold or you can simply pre-draft and spin. Since Wensleydale has a tendency to spin into a fairly dense yarn, you may want to blend it with a more crimpy wool top. Yarns spun from Wensleydale wear extremely well, making it a logical choice for items that get heavy use, such as socks and mittens. Also great for hair and beards on needle felted “characters“.
