I was able to get my hands on some cotswold ram (white) and cotswold lamb(dark grey).  The fiber didn’t feel really soft(merino soft) but it was soft enough to press to my neck and I had no itches(at least for the few minutes that I did that) but it was crisp and spongy.

I found that the lamb was a bit compacted maybe because it was so much finer.



As you can see it dyes just beautifully. I used cushings acid dyes in wine. The exact same dyebath for them both and I love how they turned out. The darker is still a bit damp so no spinning pics today.

In lieu of spinning pictures I give you this.

You can find it in the Etsy Store.
I also give you this.
