Why blend these fibers?
Gotland has amazing shine and is surprisingly soft. However, it can be very dense and a little difficult to draft. A little Rambouillet goes a long way to ease this issue while adding more softness. Spinning Gotland/Rambouillet is a meditative process. The resulting yarn is so worth the effort. Fuzzy and elastic with a lovely shine and surprising softness. Its hard to believe it’s a 30 micron wool!
What can it do?
Perfect for spinning, needle or wet felting, or dyeing.
Ideal for next to skin garments.
How does it feel?
Its surprisingly soft with a soft halo and slight bounce. The feel of the Gotland predominates while the Rambouillet mainly helps make it easier to spin.
