This particular wool has a lovely hand and its wide range of uses includes hats, mittens, sweaters, socks, scarves, shawls, and lap throws. ½ pound put-up; Carded; 33 microns; 3''–5'' (7½–12½ cm) fiber length
Louet has a strong relationship with Wadsworth Heap Ltd., a fiber supplier in New Zealand. Together, Louet & Wadsworth Heap have sourced 13 breed-specific fibers that handspinners often have a hard time finding. This collection is called the Canterbury Prize Wool Group, named for the city where the Coopworth breed was developed and for the sheep that the Van Stralen family raised for decades.
