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,…

Marriner Flock | Growing up!

Written by

Our little lambs are now about 8/9 weeks old and they have been thoroughly enjoying themselves and making themselves at home in their new field.

You can see that they are all now looking much bigger – and much more fleecy. Can you see that signature Romney ‘wool mask’ that is starting to appear?

They are still sticking close to their mums – and altogether make for a very fluffy bunch! Another shearing is coming up very soon…
