Fleeces and Yarns

As a Hand Spinner myself  I hand pick only the best Fleeces to keep each shearing

Making up sample cards

Our Young Dorsets provided us with lovely soft lambswool. Being Autumn born they had too much fleece at shearing time to leave till the normal shearing age of a year and a bit. The Texel X shearlings ( that’s their first shorn fleece - the early summer following their birth) is also the best fleece they will produce.

 

We have had these gorgeous fleeces processed into various weight yarns by the Natural Fibre Co in Cornwall, keeping this as local as possible. It comes in skeins for those of you who like to dye your own wool as well as in balls ready to knit.

 

Fleeces and smaller amounts are also available
