This product is sold out
Tunis is a rare heritage breed which has been in the US since the 1700’s. Originally a gift to George Washington from Tunisia the breed has developed its own specific qualities from the original stock. The lambs are born red and as they mature developed a lovely creamy color with a spring texture. Yarn Spin from Tunis will have a definite spring and sponge factor.
The fleece comes from a Tunis ewe who lives rightDown the road from me in Kentucky. The fleece is not coated, and veggie matter is very minimal. To process for spinning, I recommend flicking the ends and spinning from the fold or hand carding. Fabulous for felting as well.
