Wool from Tunis sheep is creamy white, wonderfully lofty and springy, and usually quite soft. It’s perfect for so many projects from socks to hats and everything in between, such as sweaters, scarves and mittens or gloves.
In technical term the Tunis is a Down-Type wool breed with fine to medium wool. Average fiber diameter is in the 50s-58s (or 24-30 microns) and staple length is 3-5 inches. Our skirted fleeces average approximately 3 lbs for ewes and 3.75 lbs for rams. Below are photos of locks from our fleeces, showing crimp patterns.
