Hello Broadstone and welcome

I can't believe that I missed this one, especially as I get notification by email of new registrations - anyway, welcome, I hope you can find us as welcoming and nice as we are.

Their wool is beautiful. The lambs wool is wavey and soft. The ewes wool is hard wearing and used for tweed and carpets. It is very long and the sheep look so funky in 'full wool'.
