2018

 

August 16th 2018

 

The wool from my special sheep is obviously as special as the sheep themselves and caring for both elements take a lot of time, care and love.
Each year we take along to the Pembrokeshire County Show some fleeces and enter them in the British Wool Marketing Board (BWMB) Fleece Competition. This year 7 of our 8 fleeces took prizes and our Superstar Leicester Longwool ewe 'Tanzin' produced the perfect fleece which was awarded "Champion" status. This fleece now goes forward to join other Champion fleeces for the "Golden Fleece" competition later in the year.

 

             

 

Look our for lots of new Limited Edition yarns from these winning sheep in the shop very soon, as well as one or two of their very special winning fleeces
