PW, Clydesdaleclopper's OP stated she was needle felting (not wet felting).  From the bit of needle felting I've done, I haven't found a wool that wouldn't needle felt.

Had to smile & think of you this past Christmas when I hung my sheep ornaments on the tree, especially the black bell weather you made from that Corriedale hogget fleece.

I also prefer longwools for felting for durability.

I've never heard of masham breed ... going to have to look them up.

Yep, everything will needle felt!  Smiley

MLF, I bet you have quite a flock of decorations for your tree!

As a brief derailment, anyone have a good recipe for mutton in mint sauce? This thread gave me an idea for dinner.

LOL!

I can honestly say the only time I've eaten sheep was last year for our Homesteading weekend.  It was a lamb that I brined in a lot of herbs & spices over night.  Then we put it on a spit (hand forged of course!) and cooked it all day over an open fire, swiping it with lard from time to time.

Most moist mouthfuls of mutton!
