Commentary: The nature of primitive sheeps wool is that there’s a wide range of variance in each fleece, from 20-40 micron. Approx. 25% is 23 micron and finer and 25% is 35 micron and coarser and the rest is somewhere in between. The variation makes for a sturdy product, popular with rug makers. The “K” in the product number stands for “Kempy,” which refers to the coarse straight hairs that appear throughout the sliver.
