One ounce of curly lustrous locks shorn from our Leicester Longwool lamb Christiane and then dyed. They are up to 5 inches long, relaxed. The color of these locks remind me of sangria. Because we love to see the sheep locks undulate like a babbling brook when they run, we do not coat our sheep. So the locks do have some bits of hay or straw in them, but very minimal and easily removed.
Christiane was born here on the farm and is now living in Tennessee with a wonderful family. Leicester Longwool sheep are an endangered rare breed of sheep that have gentle temperaments and beautiful curly and lustrous fleeces. Rivendell Farm is located along the Conestoga River in Lancaster County, PA. We are inspired by the beauty of our farm and the animals - recently I saw the color of these locks in the sunset across the river.
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.
