Finn sheep are known in their native country of Finland as Finnish Landrace. The breed is considered to be several hundred years old, descending from the Mouflon that live in the wild on Sardinia and Corsica. Finn sheep wool is noted for its lovely luster, as well as its range of natural colors. It is a fiber that takes to hand dying very well and I am able to achieve wonderful depths of colors and shades when using this type of fiber wool top.
Finnish (or Finn) wool has been described by many fiber artists as being similar to Blueface Leicester wool in appearance. With a soft hand and medium length, it is highly praised by hand spinners and also blends easily with other natural or synthetic fibers. Many hand spinners call it heavenly. Felter’s love it and have described it as a great choice for beginners. 28-30 Micron and an average length of 80mm. Weight 4 oz.
