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.
