One whole natural raw fleece from my very own pure bred shetland sheep. Lambs wool - these fleeces are from sheep that are one year old, so this is the sheep's first shearing - it is the finest, softest lambswool. This lambs wool is incredibly fine, suitable for hand spinners and felters. The fleece is unwashed, but skirted (the rough, dirty or matted edges removed). It will contain some vegetation from the field.
Although the sheep look a pale gingery colour, the wool nearer the skin is a dark brown. This offers the hand spinner a huge variety of choice - you can design your yarn with colour variation, or card the fleece more thoroughly to achieve an even colour (see my other listings of yarn for sale, which is a rich brown colour).
"Shetland Wool, taking all its properties together, is perhaps the completest article of the kind in the universe, possessing at the same time, the gloss and softness of silk, the strength of cotton, the whiteness of linen, and the warmth of wool." Sir John Sinclair September 22, 1790
Our flock is much loved and well tended. They are pure bred shetland pedigree (registered with the shetland sheep society). The Fabulous Flock are from Wales, UK. 100% pure shetland wool from The Fabulous Flock.
