From Wikipedia: The Romney, formerly called the Romney Marsh sheep but generally referred to by the local farmers as the Kent, is a breed of sheep originating in England. The Romney is a "long-wool" breed recognized in England by 1800. Exported to other continents, the Romney is an economically-important sheep breed, especially to the sheep-meat and wool export trades of New Zealand.
I have come to expect certain characteristics in fleece belonging to some breeds of sheep. Romney was my favorite for many years, until I started really playing with the finer wools, but this Romney is different than any I've handled before. It's soft and kind of downy. My assumption is that it is a cross, as it really doesn't have the 'longwool' characteristics. Nice hand, and lofty, and a very unique color, a heathered morrit! Genuinely fun to spin!

I figure stuff happens. I would prefer to be paid for an order immediately, but things happen and also, occasionally I have to send a revised invoice and I know not everyone is sitting in front of their computer waiting with baited breath for that to happen. In light of these things, you have up to three days to pay for an item you have clicked to purchase. In any event, if you can't pay for an item right away, please let me know by emailing me. I don't need details. I trust you. If however, the item has not been paid for after three days, it will be relisted.
