2 ounces of Luscious, Long, Hand-Dyed Wensleydale Locks $20
Colored Wensleydales are born quite dark, even black, but usually lighten as they age. Since my flock is a mix of ages, we have many different shades of natural colored wool from them. They are sheared once a year in order to take advantage of the length of their locks – often up to 11″ in their youth. Wensleydale fiber is admired for its beautiful luster, and these locks certainly have that! The colors are achieved using intense acid dyes, sometimes showing up as several colors on a single lock. You can use as is, or you can blend with other fibers to take advantage of their lock length and beautiful sheen. The vibrantly colored locks are somewhere between 6″ and 11″ in length, and have wonderful curls.
If you ever wanted to try tail spun yarn, these beautiful, bright, saturated, hand-dyed, curly long locks are just the thing. As featured, the fiber is dyed in the fleece and comes in semi-clumpy bunches. Pot luck is the basic starting point, but you can add variables like selecting a certain color or color groups, having the locks hand-pulled (separated from the rest of the fleece), or selecting a certain length to be hand-pulled. Each variation will involve a slight fee for the extra hand work.
