Falkland is a strong, soft fiber from the Falkland Islands in the Southern Atlantic. It is a 24 to 28 micron fiber with approximately a 5-inch staple. This is a very white wool that dyes beautifully and spins very nicely, but is not a specific breed, but rather grown to a specification and blended. There are Corriedale, Polwarth, Dohne Merino and other breeds on the island. Since there are no sheep diseases on the islands, the animals are never dipped so there are not any organo-phosphate or pyrothroid sheep dip residues on the wool.
See my Store Policy FAQs section for further knitting gauge suggestions for various yard weights and care instructions for different fibers.
My skeins are wound on a full 2-yard niddy-noddy. If you don’t have a large swift, let me know. Spun in a smoke-free, pet-friendly home.
