Faithmead Felt, Fleece 'n' Fibre

 

Specialising in Longwool Breeds

Dedicated Fleeces

Limited Edition Yarns

 

2018 British Wool Golden Fleece Country Champion

 for the Speciality/Knitwear type from Wales

with a wonderful fleece from "Tanya"

one of our beautiful Leicester Longwools

 

 

 

 

From our smallholding on the Carmarthenshire/Pembrokeshire border in South West Wales, with views out across the Preseli Hills, our Faithmead Rare Breed and Longwool sheep lovingly have their every whim catered for by me, their slave Shepherdess, who turns their magic fleece into lush stuff.

  

 

Limited edition yarns from 'named' sheep. Only one, two or three sheep fleeces in each batch so its a very personal and individual yarn for not only the sheep involved but for the person crafting their yarn into something wonderful.

"Got a gorgeous yarn delivery yesterday. It's from Mandy@faithmeadfeltfleecefibre
I couldn't resist these lovely yarn blend of 70 % Bluefaced Leicester 30 % Rose Fiber.
A 4ply yarn with somewhat handspun character. I'm very pleased as well with the good service. Thank you Mandy"

"Just received my first order of the wonderful yarn, 2 skeins of Teeswater and 2 of Leicester Longwool. Both in their natural, creamy colours. So lovely to read the label and see the names of the sheep it came from. The yarn is beautiful and I can’t wait to start knitting with it."

"Dear Mandy, The wool arrived yesterday and is stunningly beautiful! Thank you for the fast turnaround of the order - always important for a wool addict.
I haven’t ever knitted with Teeswater but from your photo I love the look of the halo combined with the shininess. I’m afraid that I’d never want to part with any of the yarn if it was mine :’) "


Warmest wishes, Claire - October 2017
