When I decided to build a hand spinning flock, my husband bought me 5 Finn Sheep for my birthday.  They were my very first sheep.  The fleece is soft with a notable crimp much like Blue Face Leicester in appearance.  The sheep come in a wide variety of fleece colors: black, brown, tan, white, fawn and piebald.  Their fleece is in the fine end of the medium wool category.  A lustrous 22 to 30 micron, the moderate crimp in the 4 -6 inch staple creates a soft, lofty yarn.  Great for spinning and felting, the fiber takes dye beautifully.

This roving is white.  It has a small amount of vm.
