The Badger Face Welsh Mountain Sheep is a native sheep with a long history. It has been found in many areas of Wales for as long as sheep have wandered the mountains and hills of the country. Its old name Defaid Idloes indicates this very early existence, as the name derives from St. Idloes, a 7th century saint. This sheep is a hearty mountain breed of a relatively small size and with a quiet and friendly temperament. The breed can be categorized into two subtypes -- the Torddu and the the Torwen - to differentiate the two distinct colour patterns. It is believed that both subtypes were some of the very first sheep in Wales. This is a rare British sheep. These are members of the Welsh Hill and Mountain Family.
These exceptional raw locks are of the Torddu type, and come from Devon, United Kingdom, by working with this fibre, rural farming of unique breeds in kept alive. Staple length is about 2 to 4 inches and 26 to 37 microns.
Offered in 1 oz. portions.

Another gorgeous package of fleece samples (ordered 4 this time). Anxious for winter for time to play with them but they are such lovely samples. A repeat customer and I'll be back for more!

Given the wide variation in shipping costs, I have the high end listed as a safeguard for my costs. If for example someone were to purchase 2 ounces of fleece the shipping cost would be representative of actual. If someone purchased 12 ounces of fleece the shipping cost would likely be too high. For any shipping overages of $2 or more than the actual shipping cost, I will happily refund the difference, and have done so for any applicable sales. Please convo me if you wish to have a custom listing set up for specific purchases and possible combined shipping costs.
