CORRIEDALE


30 Microns in diameter

1 micron = 1 millionth of a metre

Human hair averages around 45 microns


The Corriedale was developed in New Zealand and Australia during the late 1800s by  crossing Lincoln or Leicester rams with Merino females. The development of the breed occurred in New Zealand from 1880 to 1910.


The Corriedale produces bulky, high-yielding wool ranging from 31.5 to 24.5 micron fibre diameter. The fleece from mature ewes will weigh from 10 to 17 pounds (4.5-7.7 kg) with a staple length of 3.5 to 6 inches (9-15 cm).  Mature rams will weigh from 175 to 275 pounds (79-125 kg), ewe weights range from 130 to 180 pounds (59-81 kg)


This is an ideal fibre for the handspinner and feltmaker as it produces a yarn that feels good as well as being hard wearing, it felts well too. The colour range can be extended by blending different colours together either when carding or plying.
