Item details

Badger Face Welsh Mountain Sheep Raw Fleece

This whole raw fleece comes from one of my wether boys who was shorn at the end of May 2018. He was born in April 2017 which means that this is a shearling fleece and so is longer than normal as it has had a couple of months' extra growth before it was cut.

The fleece weighs approx 1.2kg, and has a long staple length of up to 4 inches (10cm). It's mostly white in colour, but with a bit of dark brown underneath. This colour badger face fleece is known as 'Torddu', which means 'black belly' in Welsh!

There is a very small pink spot on the fleece where he was marked as I picked him out from the flock when I went to buy him, but I have tested that this comes out easily by gently washing a small piece - and it does!

The Badger Face Welsh Mountain Sheep is a native sheep with a long history. It has been found in many areas of Wales for as long as sheep have wandered the mountains and hills of the country. This sheep is a hardy mountain breed of a relatively small size and with a quiet and friendly temperament. The breed can be categorized into two sub types -- the Torddu and the the Torwen - to differentiate the two distinct colour patterns.

It is believed that both sub types were some of the very first sheep in Wales. This is a rare British sheep, members of the Welsh Hill and Mountain Family.
