Hebridean Sheep

The fleece is a double coat, with a short undercoat and a longer top coat.  The locks are a long triangle in shape, wide at the bottom and tapering to the tips. The undercoat has a 'frizzy' look, because the crimps do not align - this gives wonderful bounce and resilience to the wool and anything spun from it. The colour can vary from very black, to grey or lighter brown, and shearling fleeces are often weathered brown at the tips.

For a drama in felt then Hebridean is an ideal Fleece
