The Bowmont breed was developed by the Macauley Institute in Scotland to be the British answer to Merino. It’s the only British breed producing wool in the Super and even Ultra Fine Merino classes. The project closed after twenty years of hard work when EU funding ran out. Bowmont are now very rare and unpopular. Bowmont sheep gives a luxury super soft fiber which spins up into a fine laceweight yarn.
Bowmont Dorset Cross fiber is the softest of the soft. It's the kind of fiber you can't stop squishing as you sort it and spin it.
