I just missed the main shearing of the farmer's sheep that has a flock of pedigree BFL and the bags had already gone to the collection point and were mixed with hundreds of other bags, but they found a few fleeces and one man had some rams that were not shorn so gradually I managed to get some of this amazing fleece. Do I love it or do I hate it?? When I dye some locks like these I love it, they will look wonderful felted into a anything. Lots of different sizes of locks to suit so many projects, but when I am sitting teasing out the tiny locks so that I can spin it I am not so in love. I know it will spin to make the softest of yarn but it is tedious to prepare. All in all I have only ended up with 2 small bags so it will not last long. I will find it hard to part with these locks but I will have more to follow. Dyed using food dye in the microwave, so simple, if it goes right!!
