Description

This “variety pack” contains Boreray fleece from three different ewes of different ages: from shearling through to mature. Zara is a shearling, born in 2021, while Flame is our oldest ewe, born in 2008! Fiona is "middle-aged". They all shed most of their fleece before we were able to collect it so we’ve combined what we could collect into this single listing. It’s a great cross-section to illustrate the wonderful natural variety that comes with the Boreray breed. A lovely range of colours from dark brown through to grey and then cream.
