Black Welsh Mountain

Loose, mainly open texture.
Partially cotted together in areas (but probably not enough to hold as a whole rug)
Good for peg loom, needle felting etc.
Nice range of colours from deep brown, to ginger highlights at tips.
Staple 2 1/2 "
Fleece 12: £8
Cream colour with a nice crimp.
4 1/2" staple.
Medium sized blue mark as shown in photos.
Generally needs a wash, but should be nice once cleaned!

Nice loose, open fleece, with a lovely crimp.
Blue marks down one side.
Fleece 14 £12
A really lovely fleece.
Loose, fluffy cloud with a 5" staple.

Light, springy wool with good crimp.
41/2 - 5" staple

Fleece 19 £5
Black Welsh Mountain
A part fleece (this ewe had shed some before shearing)
Partly cotted, so most of this is holding together well - splits as shown in photos.
This would not make a whole 'sheepskin' shaped rug, but could be good for felting smaller pads/mats, peg loom, or smaller craft pieces.
Fleece 21 £12
This is a gorgeous fleece! Lovely creamy, fluffy, open wool.
Gerold's fleece is intact, and if handled carefully, can be laid out in a complete sheep shape, although itdoes pull open easily.
Alternatively, it looks like lovely wool for spinning and peg looms etc.
Fleece 22 £6
This one is partially felted - mainly around the 'bottom' area. Looser and falling open at the neck and sides.
It might make a good rug fleece - but please note it really does need a good wash! Not sure what this ewe had been up to before shearing, but she forgot to take a shower! Has been skirted - poo etc removed, just generally in need of a good soak!
