Our flock was founded in the Autumn of 2007 with 2 breeding ewes from the Oxgang Flock, East Yorkshire, England. By 2020, we had 38 breeding ewes and 6 stock rams. Leicester Longwool sheep have high quality lustrous fleece, demonstrate evenness in length and diameter and have a Bradford count of 40-46. A staple of around 40 cm on an unshorn shearling is not unusual.
