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. These coloured fleeces tend to have some weakness at the tips from sun bleaching, but it shouldn’t reach beyond the very end of the fibre.

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.
