This ships as a sturdy cardboard box, with all shipping information on outside, as shown in the 4th picture. If you want to use the box as a presentation box you may prefer to have this shipped inside a plastic mailing bag, so no postage stickers are attached directly to the box. There's a small additional charge for this option to cover the extra packaging and packing time.


*Why North Ronaldsay Fibre?
This fibre is much easier to use for beginners, the length of the fibres is not as long, the fibres grip together better. North Ronaldsay sheep are a very primitive breed, but unlike many primitive breeds have a relatively fine and soft fleece. This is a rare breed that only lives on the island of North Ronaldsay in Scotland, for much of the year it grazes the shore of the island eating seaweed. By buying this fibre you're supporting an ancient industry and way of life that goes back to 3000BC.
For more information about this breed take a look at the Rare Breeds Survival Trust Webpage-
Please note, this fibre varies in it's shades of grey and brown, some batches are darker, others lighter.

*Batts are triple carded and made from 50% British Shetland, 50% Merino.

*My rovings are hand blended using a hackle, this creates open, easy to draft fibre. Made from a blend of British BFL (Blue Faced Leicester), and Merino. A
