Farm-direct fleece from rare heritage breed Leicester Longwool sheep, Leonardo. He is what is called an English blue meaning his fleece has a lovely natural color of silver, grays and charcoal. The locks are curly and about 4-5 inches long. This listing is for 4 ounces of washed fleece. There is some hay/straw in the fleece as we do not coat them, but it is minimal and easily picked or shaken out. The last two pictures are of Leonardo. He is a sweet boy who now lives on a neighboring farm and is enjoying his job there making babies!
Rivendell Farm, along the Conestoga River in Lancaster, PA is dedicated to raising and preserving Leicester Longwool sheep. They are an endangered rare heritage breed of sheep who grow beautiful lustrous locks of wool. Leonardo was born here on the farm and is a purebred colored LL.
I use USPS First class. Shipments are made within 72 hours of purchase and payment. To have a shipment insured will cost extra. Please feel free to convo us about possible adjustments to shipping rates for large orders. Insurance for shipping is at the buyer's expense. We LOVE selling locally, as it is a much more environmentally and economically sustainable way of doing business. If you are within 15 miles or so of us, we'll make arrangements to drop your purchase off at your business or home or stop by to pick up your purchase and meet our sheep. Avoid shipping charges completely! Make sure you contact us before paying so that we can send you an adjusted invoice.
We accept payment using major credit cards and PayPal. If you prefer to use personal check or money order, the payment will need to clear before the item is shipped. Local buyers may convo me about alternate forms of payment (like cash or personal checks) and local pickup. The shipment of any purchase that does not include immediate payment (such as echecks) will wait until I have actually received the money.
