This breed review, second of the three I did at the same time, covers the Shropshire breed, another Down breed from the British Isles.
I had two sources of the fiber. The first, a small sample, came from Wychwood Spinner. The second was from Marie Redding Fiber Arts Etsy store. The samples were completely different, so I combined them into one yarn, a tail spun yarn to display the lovely long locks in the Marie Redding sample.
I mention the book The Spinners Book of Yarn Designs, as a source for one way to make tail spun yarn.
Another method for tail spinning can be seen on this You Tube video.
