Bluefaced Leicester Cross Fleeces

Most of the fleeces offered are from sheep which are 50% BFL, unless otherwise specified. The other 50% is mostly Clun Forest and/or Dorset (where listed they are 50/50). A few fleeces are from ewes which are BFL crossed with North Country Cheviot.

Coloured BFL cross fleeces can be found here

Fleeces are described to the best of my ability. If you have any questions about a fleece or aren’t sure where to start, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
