Item details

This listing is for 2 ounces of hand dyed Border Leicester lamb locks.

Border Leicester is a gorgeous fiber. Silky, lustrous, with gorgeous curl. This fleece is a highly sought after first shearing.
The high shine and strong, soft fiber makes this a favorite with handspinners and felters.
Border Leicester makes wonderful, long wearing yarn, lovely curly art yarn, and very sturdy, shiny felt.

Average stretched staple length of this fiber is 4 inches.

The colors in this listing are a fresh, springtime rainbow- grass, gold, sky, lilac, and candy pink- hand dyed in a single dyepot with professional grade dyes.

This fiber comes from Taia, who is a gorgeous real sheep. Sheep like to play in the grass.
Taia's fleece has been carefully scoured to remove grease and dirt, while maintaining the structure of her locks.

Due to the nature of the lock structure, and despite my best efforts, a very small amount of VM may be trapped in some of the locks. Any traces of VM will easily fall out during spinning or felting.
