Staple Length: 7"       VM: Removed    Crimp:  Wavy Locks    4 oz. Bags

 “Little Girl" is a bright white Leicester Longwool Ewe.  Her locks are beautiful!  I use a Drum-carder to make this roving by hand in small batches.  When I pack it into the bag I use a zig-zag pattern so you can keep it in the bag while spinning.  I put a lock on the end so you can see the staple length.  Just pull the end out of the bag, close the bag a little and spin away.  See how I pack roving: VIDEO
Leicester Longwool (pronounced Lester, like the name) is durable wool with nice luster and shine.  It can be used as locks in textured and art yarn or combed and spun smooth.  Items you knit or weave will have a beautiful drape. Leicester Longwool is a heritage breed on the Threatened list.
I used my favorite wool wash,  Unicorn Power Scour. and Unicorn Fiber Rinse to help with static electricity.  They leave the wool soft, clean, and smelling great. 
Longwools are a delight to spin and will create durable yarn excellent for many projects.  Knit, Crochet, or Weave.
