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!

Second Look at our 2020 Lamb Crop

Now that they have their USDA tags in, they are easier to identify if they happen to be standing still.  Not all the lambs are represented here, and not all of these are for sale,but it is a quick peek at what we have so far and how they are growing.
