Beautiful raw Leicester Longwool fleece with lustrous curly locks from dainty Morgan, one of our yearlings. Curly tendrils that gleam. Morgan grew this fleece from September 2016 until June of 2017. The locks are up to 6 inches long. Because Morgan is our shortest sheep, she collects feed on her back, so you will find VM in here fleece, most being easy to remove. I skirted some of this area out and left some because the locks were so lovely. The fleece weighs 4.3 pounds. We raised Morgan from newborn. We have a flock of registered Leicester Longwool sheep in Lancaster County, PA. The sheep are not coated because we love to see their gorgeous locks undulate like a babbling brook when they run out to pasture. Morgan is purebred Leicester Longwool, a heritage breed of sheep consistent with the colonial period of USA. Leicester Longwool is a strong wool with a beautiful luster. It takes on dye like silk does. It makes beautiful lustrous yarn that has a halo and also great stitch definition. The locks are great for art yarns or for locks shawls and collars, wet felting and needle felting.
