WILD AND WONDERFUL
COTSWOLD CURLS
MOHAIR CURLS AND ROVING
and  LONG WOOLS!!
The wonderful Cotswold Breed produces wonderfully curly fleeces.
Often called the "poor man's Mohair", this fleece need not take a back seat to any mohair.  The lamb curls are soft and
comparable to the kid mohair and the long curly locks compare to the locks from the larger breeds of Angora Goats.   Some
will be from Longwool Crossbred Sheep.  The Longwool breeds might be Lincoln, Karakul, Border Leicester, or Merino.

Major Disclaimer!!!    Please Read before purchasing!!
I buy farm run Cotswold and other long wool Fleeces, including Mohair.  These come from small farm flocks,
often from people who say "What do you do with that stuff??"  This fiber sometimes has hay, grasses, feed or
pasture items in the fleece.  We get out as much as we can but if it offends you to find Vegetable Matter in
the wool, don't order this.  We wash this fleece, often 2 or 3 times, and in spite of all the cleaning we do
there will probably be some trash in the tight curls so.......if teasing out the tight spots, or finding some
loose natural material in the fiber  is going to be a problem with you during the fiber preparation......
.....
DON'T BUY IT!!
We don't want you disappointed, and don't want to you to pay more postage to return or exchange it.

I mostly have the longer curly locks .  These will make a strong silky yarn, and we use a lot of this roving for our Fleecewoven
Rugs.   These long shiny curls are excellent for needlefelting.  Some of the fleece is from Cotswold crossbreeds.  
I dye my fleeces generally using Jacquard Acid Dyes.  This produces a long lasting brilliant color in the fiber.  Bear in mind
that I am a free handed dyer.
I like variegated color and
do not try for an even dye job.
Pricing for the Cotswold  Curls..            
$14.50 lb. for the Dyed Fleece, $12.50 lb.for washed,
$8.00 lb. for the white raw fleeces, $8.00 for the dark raw fleeces.......

Your dyed pound will a mixture of many colors   The photos are of some of the colors I have obtained.  
There may be something like this in the pile, but more likely it will  just be colors nearby.  
I dye a lot of curls with several colors in the locks.

We use vast amounts of this fiber in the needlefelted additions to our Fleecewoven
Rugs.  It is painting with fiber.  We also use the fleece in needlefelting hats, shawls,
clogs, and anything else we see that might need some decoration with fiber.  We also
use whatever is left over or is matted too much to pull apart in our fleecewoven rugs.  
And this fleece is a long wool and often gets handled roughly when washing.  If you pull
on the lock at the cut end, the matted areas pull apart very well.

This fleece came in from Wisconsin.  We also buy from
Colorado.
Have had 20 surgical proceedures done in the past 7 1/2 years.  I am moving
slower, but still moving,  so dyeing may take some time to get done, expect
some delays, but I try very hard to keep ahead of the demand.
We do have plenty of Undyed Cotswold Curls if you wish to dye them yourselves.
We have just located a source for Farm Raised Mohair
located in Utah.  She has Mill Carded Roving in White,
Very Limited Darker Gray and Limited Gray/Tan.
There will also be Naturally Colored Curls, and possibly dyed curls as well.

The White Roving is in shades of white
to cream.  The variations in color will
be found throughout the roving.  The
fiber is very soft and easily spun.
The Tan/Gray Roving can
be a almost solid color as
shown or have variations
of tans through grays.
We also have two very large bags of Washed Yearling Mohair Fleece.  This is a shorter, curlier Mohair.  It is
wonderfully soft and silky, beautiful to dye up in sparkling colors.  Fun to add these to your spinning, allowing the
curling ends to pop out of your yarns...
