Masham Gray Combed Top.  8 oz.  AR00011BSF.

Masham is a breed cross between a Teeswater ram and Dalesbred or Swaledale ewe.  This cross has been employed for at least 100 years in the hill country of northern England.  The resulting wool characteristics can be a hand spinner dream.

  • Good Luster
  • 31-36 micron count
  • Natural Ecru Color
  • Suitable for a beginning fiber

The natural light gray color is beautiful as it is.  It also provides a perfect canvas for over dyeing. The long staple length makes this a great fiber for beginning spinners just learning how to spin yarn. The resulting yarn is strong and durable, perfect for outer garments as well as rugs and carpets.
