Dorset is a downs breed, very difficult to felt, with great memory (it doesn't crease or compress easily) with high loft and good stitch definition. Not merino soft, but still good for most purposes. Very durable. Not scratchy, low lustre. I consider this one of my favorite fibers for socks. Long wearing, well cushioned, and comfortable without having to overspin the yarn. This particular batch is on the extra soft end of the breed, soft enough for me for next-to-skin wear, though every person is different.
