Appearance of the fleece
This is a raw fleece, which we sent as it came off the sheep, it is not washed. The fleece has been lightly skirted to remove most of the vegetable matter, but some of the felted edges may remain around the neck area.
The fleece is rich in natural lanolin and feels wonderfully soft to the touch.
Weight of the fleece is approximately 800g, ideal for a home spinner.

The fleece is from a Brown Shetland Ewe, and the tips of the wool have been lightly bleached by the sun, there will often be patches of caramel or cream coloured fleece. Each fleece is as unique as the sheep it came from.

The funny thing about Moorit Sheep

The funny thing about Moorit (brown) sheep is that on our farm, at least they stick together in a group. Even if they are in a larger flock of sheep, when you need to move them or there is any danger, the Moorits will always be together.
