The Merino sheep have the softest and finest wool of all breeds.
100% pure New Zealand grown merino wool. Merino wool has a very fine micron count which means it is super soft, softer than any other wool fiber. A favorite for fast, wet felting, perfect for nuno, the top choice for needle felting details, and the only wool for spinning baby soft yarn.
Ashford's merino wool sliver (top) is our pick over others because we know the sheep are well cared for and treated humanely.
