Ah, the luster of the longwool!



Slightly coarse, this wool posse​sses a high luster that spews jewel tones of color when acid-dyed. Its rustic strength is well suited for outer garments, bags, rugs, & felting. Long locks spin beautifully with semi-worsted long-draw. Leicester Longwool sheep provide fiber for spinning, felting, knitting, crocheting, weaving, & so much more. Through increased use of their fibers by you & other creative artists, shepherds may afford to raise more of these beautiful animals, a rare breed that deserves to be conserved for future generations.

New Initiative for Fiber Artists!

To encourage the use of rare breed fibers, the Livestock Conservancy created the Shave ‘Em to Save ‘Em Initiative. Fiber artists register with the program & use wool from wool from breeds on their Conservation Priority List, which provides resources for providers of rare breed fibers. Use of these fibers encourage shepherds to continue to raise these animals & ensure their presence for future generations. In keeping with this initiative, Cranberry Creek Fibers teams with other local shepherds to provide rare breed fibers as available. Register with the Conservancy to receive your passport which you'll fill with stickers when you make a purchase from the registered fiber provider. Details are provided at:
