Raw Ille-de-France Wool
Sold by the ounce.
This breed was developed in the Ile de France region around Paris, a region charged with history, but also an agricultural region, with crops and pasture, grassland sheep and housed sheep. It was a professor at the Veterinary School of Maisons-Alfort who, at the beginning of the 19th century, had the idea of crossing a Merino bloodline, reared mainly for its wool, with Dishley stock, a meat breed of English origin. In 50 years this cross-breeding resulted in a stable breed whose original improvement was due exclusively to empirical means of selection on type. It was after 1960 that breeders made the choice of adopting the modern tools of quantitative genetics to improve their collective selection structure.
The Ile de France sheep breed was stabilized from a Merino bloodline. It has kept its qualities as a wool breed. The ewes produce between 3 and 4 kg of wool a year, the rams 4 to 6 Kg, for a fineness of wool of 25 to 30µ.
Along with meat production, the breed is also good for wool. They produce a fine and heavy fleece that is very high in grease (which results in low yields). Average fleece weight is 4 to 6 kg, with a 7 to 8 cm staple length. And the quality of fleece is 56’s to 60’s.
This raw fleece has Moderate amount of VM that combs out really easily after scouring. There are some dirty tips.
