Beauty and practicality in one gift. Like the wise shepherd says, “They can’t all be breeders!” Here’s the contributions of a few lambs who did not make the cut, so to speak. Breed, size and staple indicated, as well as price. Shipping extra but pelts are generally cheap to ship.  Click here for the latest arrivals.

View the latest fleeces below.  To arrange a purchase, send us an email (pitchfork3772@gmail.com) with your choice(s) and we will send an invoice.

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!
