A lot of the fleece is sent of to The Border Mill for processing into differing weights of beautiful yarn. The yarn is very much limited edition as each batch consists of the wool from one, two or maybe three sheep. From the lustrous longwool locks of the Wensleydale to the soft, bouncy highly crimped Corriedale.
Each and every fleece is ‘skirted’ and picked over by myself before continuing to its next process, whether to the Mill or being handwashed here, dried and then divided into bunches of locks, or just bags of beautiful fleece ready for spinning.
I like to practice my dyeing skills on some of the fleeces and yarns too, but again these are very much limited amounts, as trying to replicate a colour mix is not easy ..... well not for me anyway!
