Finn sheep has a range of wool fineness. Native to Finland, it is part of a Northern European group that includes Shetland and Icelandic with a similar range of fleece colours. The sheep are mostly white, some black and black & white spotted but also come in greys, fawns and browns. Imported to Canada in 1966 in Manitoba, they are accustomed to a cool, rugged environment. The fleece is quite lustrous with a nice crimp and is at the fine end of a medium wool. It has a micro count between 24-31. Improved over time, the wool quality has a superior softness, length and reduced itch factor, great for outerwear and all wool projects.
