The Dorset breed is an easily managed and adaptable breed.
Dorset's are versatile and have the ability to lamb at any time of the year, unlike other breeds which naturally lamb in the spring. Dorset sheep have a 'downs' type of wool, known for its density and springiness. We use our Dorset X Swaledale X Bluefaced Leicester flock to add softness but still hold the rustic nature of the wool.
Finished items will show excellent stitch definition and will be very warm and rustic. The wool takes dye clearly. It is stretchy so blocking will allow for slight size adjustments. All the colours are named after fields on the farm.
