Lexington Woolies Cormo
We are pleased to again offer Lexington Woolies Cormo Wool in natural/cream colour. This delivery was spun at a different mill to our last delivery, and this means the spin is different. The wool quality is the same!!!
Cormo is the genetic blend of Corriedale and Merino sheep pioneered on the Downie farm near Bothwell during the early 1960's. Lexington Woolies sheep have been sourced from the original breed line.
We have both 4 and 8 ply. You will be able to knit using standard tension gauge for 4ply/fingering and 8 ply. As all knitters vary in tension, please do a tension swatch.
Meterage: 4ply 365m per 100g 8 ply 215m per 100g
Weight: 100g skeins
Needles: Suggested 4 ply = 3.25mm, 8 ply = 4.00mm. But please do a tension square.
Care: Hand wash in cold water using wool detergent. Rinse in cold water, roll in a towel to squeeze out excess water and dry flat.
About Lexington Woolies
Lexington Woolies Cormo is sourced from a sheep/alpaca farm in southern Tasmania - named Lexington. The owners are local farmers who prioritise providing a brand with ethically sourced wool and superior fibre quality. They do this by being a part of the whole farm to yard production process and ensuring responsible, sustainable practices in animal welfare and land management.
Sheep fleece varies in quality depending on the climate, animal management and the genetics of the animal. The Tasmanian climate is unlike any other state in Australia, therefore with their superior breeding program and climate, the Lexington product is unique to the farm.
