Charollais is a French breed, developed in the 19th century in east-central France by cross-breeding Leicester Longwool sheep with local breeds.

Charollais wool is very soft, airy, dense and springy, making this absolutely perfect for woolen spinning technique! The natural luster of Charollais wool adds a touch of elegance to any finished projects.
