The coloured ryeland has a fine-woolled fleece which is very suitable for hand-spinning, weaving or peg looming, but resists felting. The fleece has a natural crimp and generally weighs 2.5-3kg, staple length is 6-10cm, Bradford count 56’s-58’s. It naturally occurs in shades of white, grey, brown, black and all shades and variations in-between.

I have my sheep professionally sheared by Philip Fisher, ‘The Singing Shearer’.

The fleece is well skirted, but is otherwise in its natural state

I currently have fleeces for sale from the 2013 clip, available as a whole or I am prepared to split into smaller quantities.

Please contact me for further information and details of your requirements.
