British Southdown wool.

Southdown's come from the south coast of England, this fleece comes from the standard traditional Southdown sheep not the Babydoll, or Toy Southdown's that are more common in the USA. This sheep is classified as a conservation breed, meaning it's numbers are in decline in modern agriculture.

It's fleece has a short staple length, and the classic volume you get from the Down breeds of sheep. Micron count is around 30. The classic use for this wool is as a sock wool, it creates lovely warm socks, and like all other down breeds is hard to felt, so some people report that they machine wash and dry their socks with no ill effects.

This is commercially prepped fibre, (Tops)

Frequently asked questions about hilltopcloud

Sorry, I can't supply my items on a wholesale basis
Handspun yarn should be washed carefully. All yarn has been washed before it has been listed for sale. I use hand hot water, and fragrance free detergent.
I don't recommend the rinse-free wool washes, they seem to make colours bleed.
Sorry, I can't do any custom spinning at present.
