We have a varied selection of tops for you to play with. They are suitable for spinning, felting, arm knitting and weaving such as with a peg loom. Please check the Geek Notes for the exact properties and micron count of each fleece. Each sheep breed is exactly suited to the area it originates from and therefore the fleeces vary greatly.
