This is beautiful fleecy Leicester Long wool. Sourced from a specialist breeder in Leicestershire, England. The county where Robert Bakewell first bred the Leicester Long wool sheep. The sheep at this small farm are regular prize winners both locally and Nationally. I only buy Leicester Long wool here and use it for all my own fiber projects, art yarn,etc. I choose the fleece, see the ewe, scour, hand pick to remove as much vm as is possible. Sorry if I missed any! and air dry before dyeing with safe acid dyes. any residue of dye will be removed after gentle washing, this is normal.
Leicester Long wool is known for it's staple length and curls. This is a mix of separate locks and some fleece, its will be lovely used for felting, dolls hair, handspinning, scarf tassels or fibre projects.
After dyeing I do rinse carefully but they may still some residue colour, particular turquoise and some purples. Simply cool wash, don't agitate unless felting
I take photos with care but please remember they may appear different on your screen.
We are a cat friendly non smoking home. Neither Ella or Elsie, our cats are allowed near fibre or yarns.
These locks are a beautiful colour, just what I need, and I hope you can do more of these! Thank you very much.
