Gorgeous luster and silky feel this roving has a 4 to 5 inch staple and is absolutely lovely to work with. Would make a fabulous worsted yarn or would overdye absolutely beautifully. From our registered flock of Cotswolds. We use English AI sires heavily in our program and it shows.
Our sheep are raised on pasture and fed locally available feeds and grains. We do not use harsh chemicals to scour the wool or otherwise overprocess it. Our climate is ideal for english longwools.
Please note that our sheep are uncoated and while we do our very best to produce a high quality product there may be small amounts of vm in the fleece. It picks out very easily as we only feed alfalfa and orchard grass to the sheep.
Shipping is estimated and we only charge for actual shipping. Please contact us for an estimate or if you would like to order a larger quantitiy as significant shipping discounts are often available.

Please be patient with us if it slips as day as we are a working farm and sometimes things happen. We generally use priority mail and the first $100 is insured, we request that insurance be added to orders over $100 for everyones peace of mind.
Returns & exchanges
We will refund your purchase within 14 days if you are not happy with it. Returns must be made in as purchased condition. Processing of the fiber products will invalidate returns. Please use the box it was shipped to you in as compressing wool products can damage them. Buyer is responsible for shipping costs.
We are happy to send you samples of the fleeces we have available. We ask that you help us defray the cost of postage for samples and can include several in a sampler pack.
Most fleeces can be split into smaller amounts, please contact us directly if you are looking for a specific amount or color and we will be happy to split or combine available products to meet your needs.
We do have a local fiber mill that we will take fleeces to for additional processing. They can blend with other fibers, card and spin your wool into multiple yarn weights. Orders are subject to processing times at the mill, we cannot control this. For additional processing of fleeces, please purchase your fleece and add a note regarding what you would like done, we will deliver it to the mill with your contact information and instructions. Once finished, buyers are responsible for their processing costs with the mill. They will ship it directly to you.
