20 Days of Christmas!

Day 4: Scoured Exmoor Horn X Bluefaced Leicester fleece - save 20%!

It's Day 4 of our 20 Days of Christmas promotion and today we are offering our Scoured Exmoor Horn X Bluefaced Leicester fleece at a discount of 20% against our regular selling price.

Remember this offer will last for 24 hours only. To take advantage of the special price you must purchase the product from this page - if you use the regular product page you will be charged full price.

This fleece is from a British flock and is traditionally prepared in the UK. The British Exmoor Horn Sheep is classified as a true hill breed developed in Exmoor, Devon, in the 19th century. The Bluefaced Leicester, also a historic British breed, is by contrast, a longwool and lustre sheep, unmistakable with its long, spiralling curls. The combination of these qualities produces a fine fleece that is a pleasure to work with.

The crossing of these two breeds produces a fibre which has some of the lustre and curl of the Bluefaced Leicester, but a slightly shorter staple and bouncier hand from the Exmoor. For a spinner not quite ready for a full-on longwool fleece like the Bluefaced this would be a good place to start. The  staple is of medium length being between 7 and 12cm, a nice length, suitable for most spinners. It has a bouncy feel and soft handle, which makes it a good choice for lofty, full yarns.

This fleece dyes readily and gives lovely colours.

Sorry, you weren't quick enough to catch this offer. Keep checking our 20 Days of Christmas promotion page until the 20th December - you can save 20% on a different product each day!
