Rovings/ Fleeces

Wool Type:




2013 FLEECE professionally shorn from Torwen Welsh Badger Face sheep.

This  listing is for 1 complete Black sheep fleece from a pure bred Torwen ewe from a closed flock of Welsh Mountain Badger Face sheep (Torwen are black with a white belly). Raw, unwashed, undipped fleeces for sale for hand spinners, felters, weavers and other crafts.  There may be the odd spot of coloured marking spray but these would pull or wash out.  All soiled parts are picked out; if I've missed a tiny bit, don't panic - stick it on your compost heap!  The fleece is mostly black, some are more brown and one or two a deep grey

According to the  British Coloured Sheep Breeds Association, the wool from the Badger Face sheep is firm and of medium length. Averages: Staple length 7-10cm, Bradford count 46-56, Micron measurement 37-28, Weight 1.5-2Kg

The sheep are not dipped and are kept on our 100+ acre Devon farm on pastures.  The photograph shows an example of the freshly shorn fleece.

Posted as soon as payment is received.  Please note that I will post to mainland UK addresses only as overseas postage is HUGE!  I am using MyHermes as an alternative to Royal Mail and my revised (downwards) p&p reflects this; they also seem to be offering a good, reliable service.   PLEASE GIVE BRIEF INSTRUCTIONS WHEN YOU BUY RE: WHERE THE PARCEL CAN BE LEFT BY THE COURIER, IF YOU ARE NOT IN

Please feel free to email if you have any questions, or if you want more than one fleece, and I'll combine postage costs

Customer comments: "very fast delivery, and fleece is lovely, thanks"
"Speedy delivery, nice clean fleece, cant wait to spin it up"

Check out my other items:  Torddu sheep fleeces (Torddu are also Welsh Mountain Badger Face sheep but have the opposite colouring and are white with a black belly).  I also have lamb boxes for sale, delivered to your door. More information about the sheep can be found at "South Yeo Farm West".

When you receive your fleece it may have sweated in transit so do take it out of the wrapping straight away and air for a day or so, then store in something breathable until use - an old pillowcase is perfect.

Happy bidding.
