Cormo/BFL Mocha Latte Locks, 1oz
Mocha, mocha, mocha latte. I’ll take two!
Five or six years ago Stacy Adams and I fell in love with a fleece just like this one but with shorter locks. The mocha brown just thrilled us, as did the creamy, sun kissed tips, fed our newly found needle felting addiction . I haven’t found such a brown since...until now.
I found this fleece at the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival. It is clean and free of most vm, has good lock structure has a 4-5 inch staple length. The color is quite unusual in it’s brownness. The cinnamon buns pictured are made from the fiber run one time through the carder...gorgeousness!
The perfect needle felted hedgehog fiber, great gnome beards plus a lovely fiber to spin. There is some lanolin still in the fiber and it has a pleasant handle.
Navajo Churro Lamb Locks, 1 ounce
Navajo Churro lamb locks are 8-9 inches long with gentle purled lamb locks. This fiber is not as coarse as an adult Churro would be but is still a coarse fiber. Each lock consists of long guard hair fibers and shorter fluffy fibers. The fluffy short fibers still have a feel of lanolin. Color is taupe with some grayer hairs here and there.
I love the primitive feel and look of this fiber. it makes a great Wookie faces or beard/hair on a larger gnome sculpture...think Spanish moss in a Florida swamp.
This listing is for 1 ounce.
Navajo Churro, Auburn Locks
Sale: These are the last 3 bundles and have some cotting but locks will pull apart. Sale price reflects this cotting.
I am in love with this lamb fleece!
8inch plus or minus inch locks are clean and pencil thin at the ends with a light and fluffy butt end. Fiber is not next to skin soft but is soft to my touch. Color varies only slightly across the fleece from dark auburn to a lighter red/brown shade. There is little vm. The pictures speak for themselves.
Wall art, needle felting, you could even lock spin these! Carded and spun, the Navajo Churro Fiber is a traditional rug yarn.

There are 3 bundles of lamb locks in this batch as well (see last picture). If you would like those as opposed to the adult locks please let me know in "order notes."
Carded and spun, this fiber makes gorgeous outerwear yarn for fingerless gloves, boot-toppers, hats.
These locks are just perfect for natural shades on most needle felted animals: rabbits, sheep, squirrels...and monsters!

Blacky the Shetland Sheep Fiber, 2oz
Blacky the Shetland sheep lives on Tuckernuck Farm and was raised by the amazing Veronica Worthington.
This is a hard fleece to photo well, hard to convey how gorgeous it is. This fleece was coated and there is no vm. Locks have a loose structure so care must be taken when separating individual locks for needle felting. Locks are such a lovely silver/gray and 3-5 inches long and they glisten. There is little crimp or curl but there is an occasional long thin tipped end. Locks are clean and uber soft with some lanolin left on the fiber.
I am going to card some of this fiber into spinning batts...it is going to make an uber soft and bouncy yarn (see yarn pictured above. Locks in the yarn are Gotland/bfl). I am also going to use these locks for gnomes beards and old lady hair. This fiber is also great for “furring “ needle felted animals.
