Natural Locks

These locks have been washed, but are not dyed. I offer 2 breeds of sheep with particularly nice lock structure and length: Wenslydale and Border Leceister/Blue Faced Leceister locks.

The Border Leceister/Blue Faced Leceister locks are white and 4-6" in length.

The Wenslydale locks can be ordered in "dark" (charcoal grey to black) and "light" (tan to light grey). The Wenslydale locks are much longer (6"-9")and more expensive.

Both types of locks are great as surface embellishement in wet felted pieces and also make great beards and hair for needle felted critters and dolls. Sold in 1 oz bags.

If you are interested in dyed locks, we have those as well.

Wenslydale locks: $6/bag

Border Lecister/Blue-faced Lecieister locks: $3.50/bag
