Hand Dyed Wensleydale Fleece - Shades of Pink

£5.00
Regular price £5.00

Wensleydale shearling fleece, washed and hand dyed.  These are shorter locks than the hand painted Wensleydale (approx 8 - 10 inches) and ready for pulling or combing. 

Using bright and complimentary shades, vibrant and soft choice of colours.  These locks are perfect for a range of projects including dolls hair, mermaids tails, needle felting - so versatile.



If you would like two or more colours of fleece we offer this as a separate product.


Before washing these locks are hand sorted and graded and only the strongest and best of the fibre is used.  Locks can be individually pulled making this an ideal craft supply for dolls hair, decoration, weaving and spinning.

Occasionally your order may take a day or so longer to ship if the locks are being washed and dyed just for you but we do usually have them in stock!

 

We are a working farm, we keep rare breed Wensleydales and Bluefaced Leicesters, black and white, for wool exclusively. After we shear them, the majority of the fleece is then sent for professional scouring and spinning. 

Requests for fleece have been rising, but our interest is centered more around the wool itself - partly because it provides the most income for us.

Our sheep are in prime condition, with their nutrition closely monitored to avoid any wool-breaks. As you can imagine, opting for professional shearers, weighing the sheep monthly and feeding every lamb twice daily for the first year, is an expensive task.

This means we are unable to offer large discounts but we will try offer some discounts on larger orders.

Put simply - happy sheep give the best fleeces and therefore the best yarn and cutting corners gives average ones! These values are behind everything we do.

 

And finally, my website may not give you the best postage option for larger quantities.  I will always refund any postage difference or send you a pro-forma invoice in advance.
