Text Box: Heathylee Rare Breed Sheep

We keep Jacobs and Herdwicks as well as commercial sheep such as Suffolk mules.† In total we have over 200 sheep on the farm.

We sometimes supply the fleeces from the rare breed sheep to hand spinners by mail order. We usually shear in June, so get in touch just before, for the best shearling fleeces to be despatched to your door, hot off the sheep.

For you spinners here is what you can expect from your fleece:

 

Jacob

Popular for spinning because of itís softness and variety of natural colour within the fleece.† Good for both spinning and making natural coloured rugs on a peg loom.

Whitefaced Woodland

Native to the South Pennines of England with a good staple length, soft and very white.† Great for spinning and dyeing.
