Finn (Finnish Landrace if you want to be precise) wool has come into its own after being overshadowed by the breed’s other excellent qualities. Hand-spinners, knitters felters, and weavers seek it out because of its soft hand and luster. The current price of Finnsheep wool reflects its rarity.

Finn wool comes in a variety of natural colors: white, black, brown, gray, fawn and spotted. Finnsheep fleeces have a soft hand and luster. It is the combination of these two traits that make Finn wool so special. Luster is usually only found in the long wooled breeds, which tend to be coarse. Finnsheep combine these two desirable traits into one fleece. Finnsheep fleece is much sought after by felters because of its fast felting quality and nice drape.

The American Wool Council grades Finnsheep wool in the fine end of the medium wool spectrum with a staple length of 3 to 6 inches. The yield may be of up to 40% higher than most other breeds’ fleeces due to the low levels of grease in the wool. Average micron counts of our sheep range from 21 to 27 microns.
