What is the difference between Merino and Polwarth?
Polwarth wool is very soft, almost as soft as Merino, with a fiber diameter of 58-64s, or 26-21 microns. The Polwarth breed was developed in the 19th century in Australia, and is 3/4 Merino and 1/4 Lincoln. The staple is longer than Merino, however, thanks to the Lincoln DNA, with a staple length of 4-5 1/2 inches.
