Rose of Sharon


Shropshire is a dual purpose breed, very difficult to felt, with great memory (it doesn't crease or compress easily) with high loft and good stitch definition. Shropshires are of uncertain origin, originally coming from Shropshire and Staffordshire in central western England. They are sweet tempered sheep that grow a lovely, lofty medium wool.  Very durable. Not scratchy, low lustre. Excellent for socks. This particular batch is soft enough for me for next-to-skin wear, though every person is different.

Locally sourced.
