about the wool

Black Welsh Mountain wool is short, thick, and densely stapled. With a staple length is 5-10 cm, and fiber diameter ranging between 28-36 microns. The average fleece is three to four pounds per sheep. Black Welsh Mountain wool is attractive to hand spinners, and the natural black color makes it valuable for use undyed or in combination with other wools, where it is used to make grays or in the manufacture of tweeds and other patterns.
