Gotland Top - Grey

Gotland wool is fine, long, lustrous and dense. It can be varying shades of grey, from pale silver to a rich blue-gray to a dark charcoal or almost black. The fleece grows in long, fine, and lustrous distinctive curls. Soft to the touch, the smooth silky curls feel clean, having little lanolin.   Gotland wool falls in soft ringlets and grows about 10 to 12 inches a year.

Working with Gotland Wool

Felting - Gotland wool felts easily, creating a smooth, strong surface. The curls may be used as fringe or embellishments in the felted items. Gotland wool is often referred to as, the “felter’s favorite”.

Knitting - Gotland wool yarn knits into a light and delicate fabric with a lovely drape. It has a soft halo, giving it a subtle warmth and loftiness. The lustrous sheen brings out the natural gray tones in the wool. The wide range of shades of gray allow for interesting color palettes when over-dyed.

Spinning - Gotland wool is desired by handspinners for its long length and soft handle.

Specifications:

  • Breed: Gotland
  • Weight: 250 grams
  • Staple Length: 5 - 6 inches
  • Micron Average: 30 - 34
