Coloured Fleeces

These fleeces are from mostly Clun Forest and Dorset cross ewes and lambs, so traits will tend to down type wools. More information is given where possible on specific fleeces.

All fleeces have been skirted to the best of my ability, but animals are not coated, so there is likely to be a small amount of vegetable matter, etc from winter feeding, and they may have a small amount of second cuts – this is noted on fleeces where it may be more of a concern, and prices are adjusted accordingly. Britch wool has been removed, unless otherwise stated.

Pictures are given of locks, the skirted fleece laid out with the name card at the neck, and the skirted fleece rolled. Click on the pictures to enlarge.

Please contact us if you have any questions or to place your order for fleece(s). Prices for each fleece are listed with the descriptions. Fleeces can be shipped at the buyers expense, or delivered if possible.

Britch Wool is available for $1/lb. This is course wool from the lower hind legs. It is skirted free of tags and manure.
