Just Arrived - Wensleydale Fleece

Breed as meat sheep orginating in Yorkshire in the 19th century by crossing Leicester Longwool with Teeswater, the Wensleydale has fast become a popular longwool breed. With it's darker face and bigger build the sheep produces some wonderful lustrous curls.

Wensleydale fleece is ideal for yarn and felt blending and hand dyeing. It has so many wonderful curls across the length of the fibre that you can create some really stunning crimp and slub effects.

Count: 30-33 micron/Bradford 50-54, Staple: 8-12cm
