See the Romney fleeces here.

Bluefaced Leicester here.

Teeswater here.

We also have both Romney and Teeswater bulk fleeeces  for $3 per lb plus shipping. Our bulk fleece is composed of fleeces that for one reason or another do not meet our high standard for handspinning fleeces: they may be weathered, a bit webby, a bit short (though all are at least 3 inch staple, most are 5 in.), or have some VM, but all are perfect for machine processing. So if you need a lot of fleece for roving or felting, be sure to check them out at the bottom of the respective fleece page.

Happy shopping and thanks for the visit!

We will begin contacting prospective buyers on the list in March to confirm interest. Pictures will be posted here as the lambs arrive and time allows. In the meantime, here’s a sneak peek of a few 2021 lambs still in the “oven.” We bought a used ultrasound machine from our vet and are having a blast learning how to use it.
