I found my Polled dorset wool to be wonderfully soft with a springiness that was just wonderful. I had no problem keeping this fiber next to my skin for an extended amount of time(in fact I forgot it was there). I only found references to this breed having white fiber. Although the fleece and fiber sourcebook states” there are some colored dorsets.”
Fleeces average 5 to 9 pounds . The staple length ranges from 2.5 to 4 inches (6 to 10 cm) 2.5 inches (6 cm) to 4 inches (10 cm). The fiber diameter ranges 26 to 33 microns.
