Finn-Corriedale/Border Leicester

Some days ago a there was a surprise in my mail box:



American Finnsheep 50% Corriedale/Border Leicester 50%. The fleece has strong and healthy fibers. It has characters from all three breeds: softness and lustre from the Finn, body from the Corriedale, and length and lustre without any of the coarseness of the Border Leicester. The staples are 13 cm long. I'll comb them and spin a thin yarn for lace.

Thank you haile!
