Details

Polwarth Tussah Silk Blended Wool.  Roving and Combed Top in 8 oz.  AR00124BRT.

This is a glorious fine Polwarth Tussah Silk Blended Top.  85% Polwarth and 15% Tussah (bleached) Silk. 

The Polwarth breed was developed in Australia by crossing merino rams to Merino/Lincoln ewes, with a goal of improving meat production while maintaining high-quality fleeces. The result is that Polwarth fleeces are very even, soft-feeling, and lovely to work with in any form.

They are not classed as a "beginner" wool because they are so fine. They can be used as an introduction to a fine wool like Merino or Rambouillet because of their longer staple.

  • 85% Polwarth and 15% Tussah (bleached) Silk
  • 4-5 inch staple length
  • 23 micron count
  • 58s-62s spinning count
  • 8 oz
  • Blended Roving Combed Top
  • Commerically prepared
  • Natural Ecru Color
  • Suitable for Dyeing
  • Next to the skin luxury

This fiber is superb next to the skin soft, as well as with sufficient twist in the yarn, it can also be a durable yarn for nice everyday wear.

The white ecru of this wool top takes the dye well. The fleece is elastic, resilient, and lofty even when spun worsted. It is known for good draping qualities and bounce.
