About Fibre and Ordering - wool and mohair
Please scroll through our posted fleeces and fibres below. If you'd like to purchase one, please contact us and either arrange a pick up date at the farm or alternate shipping. If you don't see exactly what you need here, let us know what you are looking for. We don't post everything and since we do our own shearing, lengths can be pre-arranged. Fleeces are skirted and generally have very low vegetative matter.
We have raw sheep fleeces for sale in white, grey and brown tones. Our sheep are cross-bred to produce long staple lengths of up to 7 inches, depending on the individual. Our animals with higher % BFL and very low Corriedale tend to produce soft, finer, crimpy fleeces in white and light grey/brown tones. Our BFL x Romney x Gotland or Border Leicester can produce fabulous, more open and more durable curls or tighter crimpy locks, depending on the breeding. Prices range depending on quality, length and colour.
Braunwen, Ceylon and their offspring produce high % BFL fleeces with lovely brown and grey tones. Depending on the shearing time, 4-7" staple raw fleeces are available.
Ewes like Daisy, Maximum, and, Angel and their offspring produce mostly white fleeces either with crimp or some curl, depending on the ram.
