Snowy White Galway fleece is an exceptional multipurpose fibre. It gives excellent definition and structure. When used in combination with finer and soft wool, it makes an ideal fibre for both outer and inner worn garments.
Classified as ‘long wool’ sheep, the staples from a Galway Fleece are not exceptionally long, they are firm and crisp with an indistinct, fluffy crimp. The staples are long enough for Worsted Spinning, giving good stitch definition and making it an ideal yarn for textured knits such as Aran.
Whilst not regarded as soft or fine wool when combined with all types of softer wool including merino, it provides structure and strength whilst supporting the preservation of Irelands Native beautiful white sheep.
