Lincoln Longwool * SE2SE * Natural Color Washed Wool * Rare Sheep Breed * Shirley

Staple:  average 5"           VM:  Almost None     Crimp: Curly Waves

Shirley is a ewe with a multi-colored fleece.  The locks are curly and lustrous, ranging from dark grey to dark brown.  

These locks will spin into a fantastic textural yarn or comb them to spin a strong durable yarn.  You can also use this wool for wet felting, needle felting, rug making, and other arts and crafts.

I washed a sample in Unicorn Power Scour and the low lanolin content was easily removed. 

Shave 'em to Save 'em Livestock Conservancy:

 I am an authorized provider for the Shave 'em to Save 'em initiative (SE2SE) and will provide the stickers for your passport. HERE

Lincolns are a heritage breed on the Threatened list.  Learn more about the Shave 'em to Save 'em challenge HERE.

This raw, unwashed fleece you can scour yourself.  If you prefer clean, washed wool please see the category: Washed Wool

***I photograph the fleece in bright sunshine to try to get the most accurate color replication.
