Wensleydale sheep is an “at risk” endangered British breed. The fleece is known for its luster and extra long curly locks. This fleece is from a small farmer in the United Kingdom.
Wensleydale sheep is only sheared once a year, so it has more dirt and lanolin in than other breeds, which means it might take a little more love to wash these locks than fleeces from sheep that is sheared twice a year…..but it is soooo worth the effort. This fleece has minimal vegetable matter and is form uncovered sheep.
The average staple length is 8-9 inches, (20-23cm)
It is sold by the pound
This washes up beautifully. You can weave, lock spin, felt or use these for doll hair.
