I used merino wool for mine and they turned out really well. I have no idea what the difference is between the two, though.

hm,acutally,there is a BIG Difference

Merino Wool is very soft,it gives very clean dreads,it´s good for candy cane dreads and soft coloreffects,if desired.

Shetland Wool,Or Wool that comes from Sheeps living in higher regions of the mountains give more natrual looking dreads.It´s more srcubby,and it roves easier.

The main point is:The structure of the wool is differnt,it depends on what you want to do with it which one is the right one.

If it´s your first time roving dreads out of wool,I would recommend the shetland wool.

Yeah I saw merino wool and then next to it was welsh mountain wool.
So it's not good?
By the thumbnail it looked rough and sheepy.
