Falkland Micron 26, staple length 4-6 inches, 100-115 mm. The base flock of the Falkland wool is Corridale, Polwarth and Dohne Merino. These breeds were developed for dual purpose, meat and wool production and are selectively bred for the ability to survive in the harsh climate of the Falkland Islands. The upside of the harsh climate is that insects and disease associated with them are not a problem. The wool is almost guaranteed to be chemical free. Since there are no known sheep diseases in the Falkland Islands, the sheep are never dipped and never go through mulesing.

100% Certified Organic Polwarth Wool Top from the Falkland Islands.  The wool was selected from two family farms on the islands and measures an incredible 22 microns. The fleeces were processed in the UK. Sheep that are raised organically are not subject to mulesing, and they are not dipped for pesticides. In addition, the number of sheep allowed to graze in any given pasture area is limited to the natural carrying capacity of the land. And as with most wool that comes from the Falklands, it is very white.

Targhee is a domestically grown wool that is processed in the United States.   The foundation stock were ewes of Rambouillet, Corriedale, and Lincoln bloodlines bred back to Rambouillet rams.  This wool has been selected specifically for Ashland Bay’s Targhee yarn program and is 23/23.5 microns.
