Why blend these fibers?
As wools go, gotland is fascinating. It is so much softer than you’d expect a 30-35 micron wool to be, and that’s all because of the fiber’s structure. It has a wavy crimp and smooth, flat scales which make it very shiny. Its that scale structure that helps make gotland so soft. Rose’s subtle texture compliments gotland perfectly to create a top that glows with an inner light.
The length of both the gotland and the rose create a blend that takes skill to spin and requires mastery of the draft zone.
