My son sent me a rare breed box from Namaste Farms for Christmas this year. Ryeland, Boreray, southdown, Manx Loughtan, Black Welsh Mountain. I washed them all immediately. They were of varying quality…short cuts, some scurf, stuff…but the Boreray! Oh My! It was beautiful!
The locks were long, with a similar spade shape to Icelandic. Like a fine Icelandic, it had 2 coats. The undercoat was skin soft. The outer coat was sleek. I spun samples of the coats separately but decided in the end that it was just fine spun together.
I spun off my Alvin Ramer mini combs.
