Virgin wool is wool spun for the first time.
Shoddy or recycled wool yarn is made by cutting or tearing apart existing wool fabric and re-spinning the resulting fibers. As this process makes the wool fibers shorter, the re-manufactured fabric is inferior to the original. The recycled wool may be mixed with raw wool, wool noil, or another fiber such as cotton to increase the average fiber length. Such yarns are typically used as weft yarns with a cotton warp. This process was invented in the Heavy Woollen District of West Yorkshire and created a micro-economy in this area for many years.
Peace Fleece is a virgin wool.
Here is my team for Peace Fleece yarn containing reviews and information about Peace Fleece Yarn: http://www.etsy.com/teams/11383/peace-fleece-yarn/discuss/
This is a good, sturdy working yarn that is very warm, perfect for sweaters or vests. It will surprise you after you wash your project. Peace Fleece feels stiff while knitting, but relaxes and blooms the more it is washed & worn, quickly becoming a favorite.
