The sheep races “Tiroler Bergschaf” and “Deutsches Bergschaf” are mainly kept in several colours in the Alpine region. Bergschaf wool is sheared twice a year. The fineness of the wool is 32-36 microns.
The wool is ideal for wet felting of robust felt objects such as shoes, seat cushions and sculptures. It is also a popular wool for dry felting.
The carded fleeces are made directly from the washed wool. A small proportion of vegetables in the fleece indicates a natural processing. Wherever robust quality is required and fineness is not important and the low price has to be given special consideration, wool is preferred by this sheep.
These wools are in Batt form not tops.
