Corriedale is a cross between English Leicester or Lincoln and Merino, so you’ll see characteristics like softness and crimp mixed with medium-long staple and toughness. These characteristics make it well-suited to worsted or semi-worsted spinning, but this fibre can also be easily spun into a woollen yarn.
Our Corriedale fibre has not been treated to be machine-washable and can most definitely be used for wet- or needle-felting. When you are finishing your yarns and projects, be sure to wash them gently and lay them flat to dry for the best results.
The Corriedale fleece is a medium wool with a good crimp, a soft handle, and is very easy to spin. The wool produced is approximately 25-30 microns with a staple length of 80 - 120 mm. Corriedale originates from New Zealand. Perfect for hand spinning, hand felting and many other craft uses.
