Our flock of rare breed sheep consist of Wensleydale, Lincoln Longwool, Shetland and Bownont Merino breeds. Our hand dyed wool packs are made up of a range of these beautiful wools.

Having our own sheep enables us to have a constant supply of the lustre wools l love to use in my work. All of the wools give different textures and effects, so using a mix of wool types makes for a beautiful end result when creating needle felted art.

Here is some more information about our sheep breed and their wool:

Lincoln Longwool – established in the UK since the 13th century. Produces a lustrous fleece with a staple length of 15 – 30 cm long. These gentle giants are the largest of the British breeds.
