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!
