Interested in trying a longwool breed other than the ubiquitous BFL? Try Perendale!

  • 100% New Zealand Perendale wool
  • Processing in New Zealand in a state-of-the-art mill
  • hand-dyed with love . . . and professional grade acid dyes

Perendale sheep originated in New Zealand. They were developed in the 1950s by Geoffrey Peren, who bred Romney ewes with Cheviot rams to produce easy-care sheep who do well on poor pasture and are easy to herd. Perendales are considered a long wool, and typically produce wool between 28-35 microns.

This roving is perfect for projects that need to stand up to hard wear. It will produce yarns with more elasticity than is typical in long wools. For garments, I like it best spun fairly thick with as little twist as possible. 

I use only professional-grade acid dyes that are wash- and light-fast, and I strive to run my dye-studio in an environmentally-sensitive way.
