Shetland fleece (not carded or combed, so there may be some locks) from our own sheep, in 10g and 40g cellophane bags, firmer than Merino so ideal for needle felting and can also be used for wet felting and other crafts.
This wool is from our own small flock of much loved Shetland sheep, who are conservation grazers for our community orchards and chalk grassland. We hand shear each sheep (which allows us to wait until the fleece is ready), the fleeces are then carefully sorted (plant matter removed) and lower grade wool separated for use as packing material. Each fleece is gently but thoroughly washed in well water and eco -friendly Unicorn Power Scour and dried in the fresh air, before being picked with our antique French wool swing picker and then either packed as a natural Shetland fleece colour or naturally dyed by us at our small outside dye house in Oxfordshire (see separate listing for dyed colours).
We have a policy of buying no new packaging material for use in posting out parcels, we re-use old packaging gathered from other local businesses, individuals and schools. We hope you will enjoy receiving your parcel, whatever shape and size it is, knowing that it has a little less impact on the environment.
