Naturally coloured fleeces have never been more popular and we have a great choice waiting on our shelves for you to choose from. “Black” wools are, in fact, a blend of black, grey or moorit, and white. Black Leicester Longwool, Black Bluefaced Leicester, Hebridean and Shetland are examples. Then we have shades of moorit, from dark to pale fawn from Castlemilk Moorit, many types of Shetland and Soay. The Herdwick fleece is a mixture of greys from pale to quite dark.
