Bergschaf - (Mountain Sheep)

The sheep races "Tiroler Bergschaf" and "Deutsches Bergschaf" are mainly kept in several colors in the Alpine region. Bergschaf wool are sheared twice a year. The fineness of the wool is 32-36 microns.

The wool is ideal for wet felting of robust felt objects such as shoes, seat cushions and sculptures. It is also a popular wool for dry felting.

The carded fleeces are made directly from the washed wool. A small proportion of vegetables in the fleece indicates a natural processing. Wherever robust quality is required and fineness is not important and the low price has to be given special consideration, wool is preferred by this sheep.
