Border Leicester

We have a flock of natural colored BL, these are a large breed with wonderful wool. It is so popular with handspinners because of several reasons: the fiber is long, adult 7-8" and lamb 4-5"; little grease which means less shrinkage and less loss from raw weight to clean weight; the wool has a luster that is hard to discribe but you will know what I mean once you see it; the natural colors range from white to black, with rich grays in between. We try to keep brown out of the flock, no ewes are kept for breeding if they have brown in their fleeces. We try our best to keep the wool as clean as we canby using sheep coats in the winter when the flock is exposed to hay. We only sell well skirted fleeces. This is a BL ewe who is getting close to shearing time.
