Blade shorn, washed fleece from our rare breed Portland ewes.
Portland sheep are on the at-risk register, and we have seven ewes.
This mill-washed fleece is the first batch of our own homegrown from our farm. We have sent it to local small batch mill, Rampisham Hill Mill.
We blade sheared the ewes last March. Blade shearing is a much healthier and natural way to shear sheep - there is no electrical noise, the sheep are left with a small covering of wool to stop them getting too cold or hot.
Perfect for felting and other projects.
All purchases help us to continue to look after the breed and encourage more people to use rare breed wool and woollen products.
