The Lincoln is an endangered breed. Big, with a strong neck, big ears and no horns, it originates in the Lincolnshire Wolds, an old centre of the wool industry where it was bread for the long stapled and lustrous wool. There are approximately 1500 breeding Lincoln ewes left in Britain. The breed was used to obtain other wool breeds such as the Texel, Corriedale, Polwarth and the Merino long wool sheep.

The wool is very lustrous but coarse, ranging between 33.5-41 microns, with a staple length of up to 46 cm, with a yield of 65 to 80%. It’s a treat for hand spinning, you can obtain a very balanced yarn in no time.

I am so looking forward to knitting this yarn!
