Coloured and white crossbred sheep

A variety of crossbred sheep have over the years produced super quality white, brown and grey fleeces that have been blended to produce the knitting and weaving yarns. They are mostly ladies in retirement now as the Bluefaced Leicester has taken precendence but a few continue to grace the pastures at Wallon.

Below are my ''stencilled'' sheep who found fame as advertising boards for Alton Towers’ terrifying ‘Smiler’ ride which holds the record for the most inversions on any roller coaster in the world – bit like working in the lambing shed! They appeared in several newspapers sporting the 'Smile' logo, including the Daily Mail and The Sun, promoting the 'new' ride.
