Our Process

Shearing

Shearing is the process whereby the sheep's fleece (wool) is removed using mechanical shears called 'handpieces'. For sheep breeds that are specifically grown for wool production, the fleece needs to be removed regularly because it grows continuously. Sheep are typically shorn at least once a year, usually in the summer.

one of the substances our weavers would like removed is Lanolin
