I recently visited Wild Rose Farm on shearing day. I was so excited for this day I actually had butterflies leading up to the event! The owners kindly introduced me to all the 'wool-in-waiting' and to be honest, I had no idea what I was looking for. They all looked amazing to me, probably because they were all amazing fleece. How can you go wrong with Wensleydale, Teeswater, English Leicester Longwool, and Border Leicester Longwool? So I perused the sheep and decided on an 87% Wensleydale in white, and this little beauty in black. This one is a cross between Wensleydale and Border Leicester Longwool. Below is Cedar on the skirting table. I can hardly wait to get to work on this wool.
