Natural Dyed Locks
Wenslydale and Teeswater locks are like long ringlets of glossy hair. These breeds are amazing looking large sheep and the fleeces are very heavy indeed. Getting good locks to start with can be quite an effort, but once I've found good fleeces, the process of washing, picking, mordanting, dyeing, over-dyeing, weighing, bundling and packaging is very time consuming but one of my favourite areas to work in. There's nothing quite so thrilling as seeing the locks all finished!
