Not a fancy lock, not a showy lock, not a curly lock...this is just your basic, brown sheep lock with a broad crimp and sun kissed tips. Locks measure 2 inches in length, are of medium coarseness and are clean and free of vm.These little critters are great for anything needing a forest floor, a wee gnome beard or a cute wire hair terrier!Enjoy!
Lovely, lovey auburn locks with some white ones mixed in. There are a few shorter curly bits but mostly 6-8 inch long locks. Icelandic fleece is double coated with a coarser, longer outer coat (auburn) and a shorter, softer and fluffier undercoat (gray to off white). Take care when separating the locks so asnot to separate the long guard hair from the shorter fluffier bits.Most of the fleece is auburn but there are some white locks mixed in as well.Carded and spun this would make a lovely yet strong yarn.Enjoy!
This is a soft and lustrous fiber with 3 inch locks and a gentle wave and perfect for needle felting or spinning. It is clean and free of most vm.Enjoy!
These locks are from a mixed breed lamb: Lincoln, Wensleydale and Gotland BFL X. So much goodness in one fleece. Locks are 4-6 inches long with purled lamb tips, clean and free of most all vm and have a strong lock structure. Color varies as you can see in the pictures. My personal favorite characteristic are the brown tips on many of the locks.Enjoy!
Salt of the earth, dark brown with sun-kissed tips are these 2" locks from a neighbor's Romeldale sheep. They are clean with some lanolin still present, free of most vm and delightfully perky. These make great wee hedgehogs and beards for little gnomes. They also can be made into dreads by rubbing/rolling each lock in your hands for a bit. Forest scenes, wet felting detail, 2-D wool painting....all uses for these locks.Enjoy!
Soft and silky silver with brown highlights reminds me of the pelt of a gray wolf! Gently comb out a few locks and add to the back of your wolf pelt to add depth and dimension to your sculture. These are also perfect for gnome beards and for adding to you 2-D wool painting palette.3-4 inch staple length with little to no vm and a pretty wavy lock.Enjoy!

There are a few stray white locks.I don't get a perfect fleece like this very often. These locks are definite keepers!!!Enjoy!

Witches Hair is back!This is a lovely Icelandic fleece from Queso Cabeza Farm. Locks are clean and free of most all vm, 4-6 inches long and are double coated. Double coated means that there are two part to each lock, a soft fluffy undercoat with coarser, longer guard hair. In this fleece the guard hairs are black and the undercoat white to gray to black. Take care when separating the locks so as not to pull the two fiber types apart. Traditional Icelandic yarn takes advantage of the soft warm undercoat for warmth and the longer guard hairs for strength and water proofing.Enjoy!
Primitive and earthy! These are 3" Navajo Churro Locks, a double coated fleece. locks are coarse, brown with some gray hairs and some with sun kissed tips...there is a lot of depth to this fleece.These would be great for a wild bison sculpture, hair/beard for a woodsy character, even use for a wild little hedgehog! Enjoy!
This is a super soft and lovely double coated fleece which is mostly white but has reddish highlights. Staple length is 3-5 inches, there is virtually no vm, and locks have a loose structure with a beautiful wave. There are plenty of white locks and some with reddish highlights. Dotted throughout there may be some small tight curls as well. This would be lovely spun and of course, would make the best of gnome beards!Enjoy
