White-faced Woodland

White-faced Woodland sheep after being sheared, the fleece stacked up by the barn.

Fleece

 

Beautiful and colourful fleece for knitting, crochet and other craft projects.

 

All of the fleece is from the UK and a large proportion of it bought from farmers in High Peak, Derbys.

 

The dyed fleece is hand-dyed in small batches using a wide range of dye stuff including plant leaves and roots, fruits and berries and tree bark.

 

Naturally dyed fleece available on request, carded or un-carded, enquires welcome.

 

A wider range of fleece is available. I buy large quantities of fleece in the summer after shearing time, average price of sheep fleece £10 (plus postage), depending on breed, for unwashed 3/4kg of fleece, details on request.

 

Hand wash only.
