Description:
Fiber: 100% Babydoll Southdown Wool
Color(s): From an off-white sheep
Amount available: 2.72 lbs. total, sold by the ounce
The fleece was scoured by me and sent to a mill to be processed into roving. Babydoll tends to be a bit "VELCROŽey" and you might find small bits of VM.

NOTES REGARDING COLOR
Please bear in mind the photo May Be Slightly Different from the actual item in terms of Color due to the lighting during the photo shooting or the monitor's display.
*Babydoll Southdown sheep are born either black or off-white. Even though they are born black and referred to as black sheep, the fleece of many will fade to dark chocolate or lighter shades of brown and even an oatmeal color. As they age, some of the black sheeps’ fleece will fade to different shades of gray, some much faster than other.

NOTES REGARDING PROCESSING
Unless otherwise noted, once the sheep were sheared by a professional, all aspects of the processing of the fleece, from raw to finished product was completed by me at the Bergamascos' Babydoll Brigade farm in a smoke free environment.

NOTES REGARDING WASHING

Babydoll wool is a natural version of "superwash" if you will. I have washed hand knitted socks in my front loading washing machine. After washing, I give them a lengthwise tug to shape them and then air dry. I recommend hand washing, blocking, and air drying for "fancy" items or items with fringe.
