We offer a few ewes and lambs each year for those interested in starting their own spinner’s flock. Our sheep have been carefully bred and selected to offer long yet soft and tightly crimped wool, with good luster and durability. Their wool provides a staple length which can be used for socks, sweaters, scarves, vests, hats, gloves and more. The cross we have carefully come up with is between two long wool sheep, the Border Leicester known for its use of wool in durable Scotch sweaters and the Blue Face Leicester is known for lighter weight fleece and its tightly crimped soft fiber. Combining the two breeds has given us the best of both worlds with long wool of greater volume and durability, yet soft and tightly crimped. The fleece weigh from 6 to 8 pounds. We are unaware of others offering this carefully selected cross of the two breeds.
The ewes are of medium size weighing 150 to 175 pounds when fully grown and make excellent mothers and are good milk producers, they have few birthing problems and are very attentive mothers. Our breeding stock are easy to handle with a calm disposition and with a small amount of handling become friendly. Twins are frequent and we select for this. We offer both white and natural colored ewes and ewe lambs.
