This is truly beautiful wool, sourced from Dodgson Wood Farm in Nibthwaite, Cumbria. The Castlemilk Moorit has a very soft fleece that has a short staple, so it has been mixed with cheviot for delightful and hard wearing wool. Maria & John also keep Black Welsh Mountain, Teeswater & Bluefaced Leicester sheep to create the most beautiful range of natural colours. Maria & John are conservation farmers, finding ways to work that are sustainable and environmentally sustainable. I met the Castlemilk Moorit at Woolfest (and the lovely Maria & John!) and they are very elegant sheep, almost deer like.
