Coloured Fleeces

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.

The first fleeces are Bluefaced Leicester cross ewe fleeces. Most are 50% BFL and remainder Clun Forest or North Country Cheviot. They are similar breeding to the white BFL fleeces. More information is given where possible.
