California Red wool
This is not a wool I come across very often so I'm excited to have it! This roving is from a variegated gray fleece and has flecks of brown throughout. CA Red wool originated down in Davis California while crossing breeds to make a meat sheep that did not need shearing. Well that didn't work out but this wool did!
The average staple length on this fleece was 2-3 inches. The crimp is very dense and this spins up similar to down breeds although this breed is not in that category. This fleece was more on the coarser end so will likely not be suitable for next to skin wear but would be great for hats, mittens and other outerwear.
Available in 4 and 4.5 oz bumps of roving.
