landes de Britagne

I collected this fleece during the week from Co. Down.  I am so far delighted with it and the first of it is in the ferment bath.  This breed was imported from France and there are very few in the country.  They come either black or white but I only have the white fleece.  The sheep are a delight,  tiny only 60cms high and if I had a piece of land they would have been in the back of the car along with the fleece.
The staple length is longer than seen here and it appears to be free of kemp and have a soft handle.  Such fun to have something that is different to play with and hopefully sell as well
