Prices are based upon the British Wool Marketing Board’s average projected overall price for wool sold under their jurisdiction & so offers good value to those wishing to spin raw wool at home but who are otherwise without access to a ready supply of fleece. Please refer to the header photograph of our general ‘Sheep’ page for a picture of the fleeces in their woolsack, taken just after they had been sheared earlier this year.
I must stress that we’re not interested in making any profit on our wool; all we’re doing is helping to cover our shearing costs. Unfortunately we were not sent a Wool Ticket this year so as it would cost us around £70 to courier our fleeces to our ‘local’ Wool Marketing Board offices in Brecon, we’d be sorely out of pocket if we did so! Besides, I’d far rather see these lovely fleeces in their myriad natural colours go to good homes where they’ll be made into beautiful garments as they deserve; than used for loft insulation or whatever.
Please note prices are non-negotiable & are NOT inclusive of P&P should the purchaser wish to have their fleece delivered via Royal Mail.
Thank you for your interest & we’d be grateful for any photos of the resultant garments this lovely, soft wool produces!
