Geelong Lambswool is often described as the softest lambswool in the world. Each breed of sheep has different fibre qualities according to the area they live in. This is due to the climate, the grass they eat, and the years of different cross breedings. Superfine Geelong Lambswool is produced from the large species of Merino sheep in Geelong, a county in Australia. Superfine Geelong Lambswool has a much shorter fibre and it is woollen spun, very different from Worsted Merino wools. It is bulkier and softer in appearance, which is created by a particular spinning technique that involves carding the raw fibres so that they criss-cross one another.Meaning that the yarn is able to trap more air giving you more warmth with lighter weight. Geelong is woollen spun, very different from worsted merino wool. The fibres criss-cross one another giving a bulkier and softer appearance.
The yarn is taken from the first shear of seven month old lambs. Then the fibres are separated and sorted by length and fineness of micron before spinning (the finer the micron, the softer the fibre).
Comparable to cashmere for its warmth and soft handle, Superfine Geelong Lambswool is an elegant, comfortable and practical yarn.
