Dorset Horn & Leicester Longwool I'm visiting another sheep farm today! In my search for Shave 'em to Save 'em rare breed sheep fleece I have found several small farms within driving distance of my home. Today I am traveling to New Jersey to meet Jo-Ann who has Jacob, Dorset Horn and Leicester Longwool sheep. Jo-Ann has a beautiful, clean and well maintained farm which translates into the fabulous fleeces. As we walked through the field to the barn, I could see the sheep herd in the distant pasture. They all had their full fleeces on; as shearing is scheduled...
Jacobs is my last name so I have a reason to love this breed. The wool is a medium grade and easy for beginners to scour and spin. It offers several colors from the same fleece. The yarn can be spun to create the perfect yarn for just about anything you want to do with it.
This is one breed that can make everyone happy!
