Falkland is softer, fluffier, and has a much more pleasant handle than the more common Corriedale with which it is often compared. This is an excellent felting wool, so items made from it should be gently hand washed and air dried unless felting is desired.

This listing is a braid of three long pieces of combed top dyed with Greener Shades Dye in purples and greens and turquoise blues. Greener Shades is a commercial colorfast dye with no heavy metals. The color was set by the heat of the Florida summer sun and no microwaves or plastics were used to color this wool. The first three photos were taken indoors and the last two outside in the sun.

Falkland Wool refers to wool from the Falkland Islands rather than a specific breed of sheep. The sheep foundation stock includes Polwarth, Merino, and Corriedale. This is a significant industry in the Falkland Islands and the wool is very carefully classed and processed to maintain their reputation of superior wool. Due to the harsh climate of the islands there is no need to dip the sheep in chemicals, resulting in a cleaner and more organic wool.

Falkland has a beautiful balance of both luster and softness with a Bradford count of 59 - 46, and a Micron count of 23 - 31. Staple length 3-5 inches This listing is for 3.7 ounces of Falkland wool combed top that is probably 24 or 25 microns according to my hands. I would consider this next to skin soft.
