Welcome to my seasonal fleece box subscription!
I am proud to be sharing with you a regular seasonal flavour of our land, a connection to our rare breed flock and to the plants and wildlife that we live among here on the farm.
Every 3 months you will receive a different, seasonal selection of fleece and plant products from our flock and our fields in West Somerset.
All of our sheep are blade shorn for their own health and wellbeing and because it improves the quality of their fleeces, something that we have seen improve year on year - we manage our small flock sustainably, ethically and with the very best of welfare in mind.
All the plants foraged and harvested will be from the farm or from nearby hedgerows, sustainably harvested, with information about the plants and our connection to them.
A typical box will include:
* 100g carded batt from a single named animal
* 100g Washed, sometimes plant-dyed fleece from our flock ready for spinning or felting
* 100g Raw fleece such as our Shetland/Icelandic lamb's fleeces or other breeds sourced from within an hour of our farm
50g sliver from the HoneyWoods flock
* Plant dye, natural ink, herbal tea or other seasonal plant-based goodies
Packaged in a recycled gift box and posted second class.
The products will vary depending on the time of year and the availability of fleeces.
I will post out every 3 months for the Spring Equinox, Summer solstice, Autumn Equinox and Winter solstice. Last orders for each will be 18 March, 18 June, 18 September and 18 December. If you choose 6 monthly your subscription will start at the next post date and continue every 6 months.
