Fleeces are going quickly. If you are interested, you would be well advised to make your selections quickly. The BFL fleeces have all been sold and there are only 3 Gotland fleeces left. I do however have several very lovely fleeces for handspinning that come from a variety of breeds crossed with BFL. If you take a look at the Specialty fleece page, you can see what I mean. These fleeces are from a group of ewes that I bought last fall from Anne Carmichael. Her fibre flock consisted of Border Leicester, Romney, Corriedale and Texel ewes crossed to a BFL ram. These fleeces have all been skirted - some were coated and although they may or may not display BFL fleece characteristics, all of these fleeces will be a treat to work with.
I have had some inquiries about Gotland or BFL breeding stock that might be available for sale this year. The two Gotland ram lambs (75%) are already spoken for and I will keeping the single ewe lamb. What may be of interest to some are the BFL x Gotland lambs born this spring. The fleeces will be quite amazing combining characteristics of both breeds but displaying the length of staple and lock qualities highly prized by fibre artists. I will get photos posted in the next couple of days!

You can go directly to the 2015 BFL and Gotland Fleeces and also to the 2015 BFL Cross and Specialty Fleeces page to see what is currently available.
Fleece drop offs may be possible in the Lower Mainland and in Victoria for a small fee. There is a fairly good selection at the moment so act quickly. Fleeces generally sell out quite promptly, but I do have a good selection of processed BFL and Gotland fiber available.
