Our British wool varieties
At The Wool Room we sell a great variety of British wools. Here are some of our favorites...
Blufaced Leicester wool
Bluefaced Leicester wool is a long wool, known for it's fine, silky, springy and lustrous qualities. This form of British wool is extremely versatile. It's fine enough to make clothes which won't itch, but is durable enough to handle day-to-day wear and tear and stays lustrous after dying.
The thickness is approximately 26 microns and the staple length is three to six inches. Bluefaced Leicester is feltable and blends well with other fibres.
This wool produces a particularly bulky yarn and has excellent insulating properties. It is great for spinning and it's thickness is typically in the range of 34-35 microns. Despite being quite thick, it's still incrdibly versatile. Suffolk wool would create the perfect yarns for outer garments.
A lightweight and warm yarn. Our Walter Welsh tops are approximately 34-35 microns thick and two to three inches in staple length. A hard wearing wool ideal for external felted fabric for slippers and bags.
Jacobs wool is another great wool for spinning or blending as it has long combed fibre. The fibres' staple length is usually three to five inches and fibre diameter is approximately 34-35 microns. Jacobs wool is a beautiful colour, perfect for creating a versatile accessory such as hats, gloves or socks. The fibre displays moderate crimp with a slight lustre.
Otherwise known as Daisy Wool, this is a dense wool that's very resilient and is ideal for a range of outerwear projects. The staple length of our Daisy wool tops is two to four inches and the fibre diameter is 33-34 microns. It is a medium dense fibre but it's also very durable.
Our other wools are equally versatile, so simply click on the products above for more information on their origins and uses.
