Bergschaf

Bergschaf wool batt, carded wool  in natural grey and white, a coarse wool of around 30 microns. Despite washing before carding, some vegetable matter may remain. The Bergschaf sheep breed comes from the mountains of Austria and adjacent areas of Italy. A strong wool particularly useful for making structural projects like rugs, vessels, boots and bags.  The carded batts are quick to layout and the wool is fast to felt.

Being a strong wool, Bergschaf wool is easier to use in the form of a batt rather than roving. After opening up the batt, you can separate it into thinner layers and use it as required. Because the fibres are all meshed together, there is no need to worry about directional laying out.

Being a high micron wool, it can overpower other finer wool like an extra-fine merino. However, this can produce some really interesting shading effects.
