1.294 kg of curls varying from approx. 100mm to 170cm. May be some longer as the fleece typically varies in length across the body.
The Wanstead Park English Leicester flock is registered with the ASSBA. They live in the Northern Midlands of Tasmania. As a heritage Rare Breed, there are limited numbers left in Australia. Their wool is prized for its wonderful lustre.
This greasy fleece is from a young animal around 10 months of age. This is the first shearing. Soft, lustrous and showing super duper characteristic curl. This fleece has been picked twice and should be free of VM ...but due to the difficult season, you may find some stray prickles (we hope not).
Ideal for felting, lock spinning, dolls' hair, this wool will scour to a brilliant shiny white and slurp up dye with gusto.
