Each braid bump weighs from 4-5 oz, but all are priced at the amount of 4 oz.
Each color comes in a one of a kind batch with 4 other braids. These colors are not written down, so will not be repeatable in the future.
Our Falkland wool is 26 micron with a staple length of 4-6 inches, 100-115 mm. The base flock of the Falkland wool is Corridale, Polwarth and Dohne Merino. These breeds were developed for dual purpose, meat and wool production and are selectively bred for the ability to survive in the harsh climate of the Falkland Islands.
The upside of the harsh climate is that insects and disease associated with them are not a problem. The wool is almost guaranteed to be chemical free. Since there are no known sheep diseases in the Falkland Islands, the sheep are never dipped and never go through mulesing.
Note Before Purchase:
Color tone and placement vary batch to batch, due to the hand dyed nature of this wool. Please note that before purchasing the yarn.
I try my best to take photos to accurately represent the colors but since each computer/mobile device displays pictures slightly differently, colors may differ a little in person than what you see on your screen.
