Meet the flock

 

I love that the wool is from rescued sheep, who are well looked after and get to live to the end of their natural life

Our flock has over seventy sheep and two alpacas.

All  came to us as rescues and they are a diverse flock, all breeds from fine merino through Corriedales, Border Leicesters,   Billie the rare breed Shropshire, Dorpers and cross breeds.  They are all colours from white through grey, brown and black. The staple lengths  vary with their breed.

Both of the alpacas are white Huacaya (the other alpaca type being Suri).

Lambs arrive each year,  as orphans or foundlings. Many sheep arrive as adults.  Some of our flock are quite elderly, the known oldest being Peta at 13 years old, and dear Blossom, who is now blind due to inoperable cataracts.

Here are some of the flock
