I may use this BLOG GIVEAWAY

Thought I would wet your tastebuds with a little peek at some fleeces. I am not saying these will be in MY YARN but they could be.

Any you fancy? Its only a sample of the Breeds that may be used. All washed and ready for carding.

REMEMBER EVERY COMMENT IS ANOTHER ENTRY TO WIN



Shetland Moorit, shetland is super soft the fleece lends itself to fine spinning, which is why you get alot of sheltland shawls. This is the softest fleece of the british breeds. I love shetland for baby items.




Washed Romney Fleece, a beautiful soft fleece ideal for the beginner in washing and carding wool. It is lovely and soft. When felted it gives a textured finish.




Washed Black welsh fleece. A natural black colour, with reddish tips. from this tiny breed of sheep. An ancient breed of sheep which was around in wales in the middle ages.




Carded llama from Tollykit on misi. Super soft and flyaway, I will definately blend this to make a supersoft yarm

The Black Welsh is lovely, as are they all. Any combination would be wonderful.

The Black Welsh is kind of dramatic, isn't it?
