Red Fox Sheep

Red Fox Sheep are a hill breed and originate from Bavaria. There is only one flock in the UK which is on nearby Dowthwaite Head Farm.

The lambs are born red all over and then at 6 months old their wool turns a cream colour with red flecks. Their head and legs remain red.

Fibre artists love to spin and felt this interesting wool with a fibre diameter of 33-36 microns. A ewe grows 3-4 kg of wool per year.

We have this unique wool spun as aran weight and it is available to buy here through our online shop.
