Saxon Merino Sheep

Lamb's wool, Ultrafine

3 Ply In A Worsted Weight
 

 
17.4 Micron Lambswool 
 
Our Saxon Merino lamb's wool is even softer (because the Average Fiber Diameter or AFD is finer) than their mothers' wool.

At shearing we separate the lamb fleece (wool from sheep born a year ago) from the fleece of the older sheep by sorting the sheep into two age groups before shearing them. After shearing I ended up with 1 bale of lamb's grease fleece and 4 bales of the grease fleece from older sheep; their AFD is 18.7 microns. The bales weigh about 600 lb. They are sent to the scourer where the grease from the fleece is washed form the bales. For micron testing, core samples of the clean bales of wool are taken and sent to a wool lab for laser analysis. I can have the wool micron tested at Texas A&M or privately, as I did, at Yocom-McColl Testing Laboratories.

See Wool Measurements for more information on this clip and a histogram of the laser micron test.
 
All this technical jargon means that you have the finest, pure and unblended Saxon Merino wool yarn in your hands.
