Durable (not harsh), dense, firm and versatile. Cheviot contains no kemp or coloured fibres. It is chalky lacking the brilliance of the long wool breeds. The Cheviot breed of sheep gets its name from the Cheviot Hills that form the border line between England and Scotland.
What can I use it for?
A real pleasure to spin and dyes very well indeed. You'll find our Cheviot perfect for spinning, dyeing, felting and many other craft uses. There are also limitless possibilities for blending with other wool or fibres such as silks, flax, bamboo etc.
How much fibre will I need?
This will depend on how finely you spin plus the size and tension of the final knitted garment. The weights below are a helpful guide but cannot be guaranteed. If you are unsure, always buy a little bit more than you think you'll need (that's what stashes are for!)

Natural & biodegradable
Wool is 100% natural. Every year sheep produce a new fleece making it a renewable fibre source. At the end of its useful life it can be returned to the soil where it will decompose.
