Polwarth is a breed of sheep created in Australia in the late 1800's by crossing Merino sheep with Lincoln Longwool sheep. Polwarth wool has a longer staple length than Merino but it's not quite as soft. It's wonderful to spin!

Our yarn is wound into hanks. If you would like us to wind the yarn into balls for easier knitting or weaving, please let us know. We are happy to provide this service at no charge. Please note this may require cutting the yarn if the hank has too many yards to be wound into a single ball.
