Marriner Flock | The little ones are all grown up…

Written by

The lambs are now around 7 months old, and no longer the tiny little things we once knew back in the spring. They’re still lively, sprightly and cheeky, but now all grown up. Because of this, at the end of the summer it was time to separate them into a different field to give their mums a chance to rest and recover.

While the lambs are no longer dependent on the milk from their mother, they will still take milk as and when they want to – and given that they are no longer the tiny things they once were, this can cause some strain on the ewes if they are not separated and allowed to recover.

Moving them into separate fields means that the lambs will become more independent and their mums will be able to fully rest, recover and gain some weight ready for…

Marriner Flock | Fleece First Impressions

Written by


After shearing, we sat down with the shearer and asked him to tell us a little bit about shearing Romneys twice a year and his first impressions on the fleece.

It’s already lovely and soft, and also very clean – so that means it should be easier to process and yield more yarn – which means even more yarn available for our lovely customers! But a little less on our ladies…

The fleece is now currently being processed, and we will have news of an arrival date very…

Marriner Flock | Spring Shearing

Written by


Our beautiful ladies’ fleece was getting a bit long, so they were due their second yearly shearing this week – and they certainly deserve it after running around with their little ones who are getting cheekier and cheekier by the day.

Shearing not only means that we can turn the lovely fleece into wool, but it also is necessary for the sheep to have a better quality of life. Shearing keeps the fleece away from their eyes, which can cause wool-blindness when left to grow too long,…
