1 oz of beautiful hand dyed Wensleydale shearling locks. Shearling locks are the sheep's first clipping, have longer staple lengths, and are softer than any future shearing.
These locks are approximately 11 inches/29cm long. They have been dyed a blue with purple undertones on the top, then transitioning to a slightly lighter blue, then violet and finally a bright, in-your-face neon pink at the tips. They would make great doll hair - for rerooting, for Waldorf, Blythe or Fantasy dolls, the only limit is your imagination.
This fibre would also make fabulous spinning wool, or even for felting.
Wensleydale sheep are classified as Rare by the Rare Breeds Survival Trust of the UK. This fleece in particular came from a sheep called Bright Eyes who lives in a small family farm in England. A little amount of vegetable matter might be present.
These locks have been hand dyed by me using professional-grade acid dyes. If you'd like other colours or amounts, please contact me.
