Suffolk sheep are a British heritage breed. Suffolks are typically raised for meat, but they can also produce a fairly soft wool that is still sturdy and fun to spin. It retains warmth well in its squishy, cozy depths. Most US breeders produce white Suffolk, but this natural Suffolk roving comes from the UK. It produces a cozy yarn that is perfect for outerwear. It will also felt with ease.


Price is per ounce of fiber. (16 ounces = 1 pound)
