Polwarth fiber is a fine wool breed. After crossbreeding Merino and Lincoln sheep a new breed was established in 1880 in Australia. The new breed was called Polwarth and is 3/4 Merino and 1/4 Lincoln. Polwarth sheep produce a very fine wool suitable for baby items.
This wool is elastic, resilient, lofty and drapes well.
The Tussah silk adds an element of shine to the blend.
