After all, they can’t ALL be breeders!

To order, please send us an email at pitchfork@usol.com. Indicate which pelt(s) you are interested in and your zip code. We will figure shipping and send you a PayPal invoice, unless you request another payment method. 

When we do decide to cull our lambs, we try to make the most of this unfortunate reality. The meat is, naturally, the most immediate and delicious product of these decisions, but the pelt provides a more long term return. All of our pelts are from unshorn lambs with 3″- 5″ of fleece, tanned washable. They have not been hot-combed, so the crimp, lock and luster is preserved. They make the best and most unique baby shower gifts ever — babies just love them! Other uses include car seat covers, wheelchair seat covers, throws for sofas and chairs, wall hangings or other display uses, and more. Some are best used as craft pelts to cut up and use to make doll hair or Santa beards.

2451-H Romney Lamb

2451-H Romney Lamb

2451-H Romney Lamb

Measurements: 40 X 24
Fleece Length: 2.50"

Very soft and dense, feels great just to run your hands over it. There is a small hole at the edge, shown in one of the photos below.

All Romney pelts in group 2451 come from nearly identical lambs, with the only differences being variations in size and staple length, due to age differences when processed. They all exhibit excellent lock structure and crimp. Any holes are clearly evident in the photos, and none are visible from the wool side. Romney lamb pelts are soft and pillowy, with good cushioning properties. They work well in a variety of uses. including  draped over furniture, in bassinets (they are washable), or as rugs in low traffic areas, such as next to a bed. Due to their higher density, they are sometimes used in medical settings to relieve pressure on joints for less mobile or arthritic individuals.
