We carefully hand washed these 2 oz of a rare Lincoln sheep's gleaming curly locks to retain lock structure. We hand dyed them and as can be seen the luster shines through the various shades of purple and the natural white fibers. The locks range between 2"-2.5" in their natural curled state.
Please see the additional close up pictures that show the curliness, gleam and lengths!
These locks can be combed on mini combs or carded if desired. Unprocessed they can be spun into yarn to create texture, woven as curls, used for doll hair and felted or used in rug hooking. Please note that yarn created from these locks will be a slightly lighter purple than the lock due to the white fibers. Locks used in their natural curly state will have both purple and white areas. Very unique!
This fleece was found at the Rhinebeck fleece sale and the judge gave it the highest score, 5, in each category: uniformity, density, handle (soft and lustrous with proper strength), crimp, length and weight.
We feel strongly that the rare breeds of sheep should preserved because they have unique attributes. Machines that spin wool commercially cannot process the curliness of Lincoln wool, for example, and it gives us texture and shine not found in commercially spun wool.
