There’s a thread about them and their fleeces on Ravelry. 
Don't listen to the money men - they know the price of everything and the value of nothing

Live in a cohousing community with small farm for our own use.  Dairy cow, beef cattle, pigs, sheep for meat and fleece, ducks and hens for eggs, veg and fruit growing

Just fetched out a recent copy of The Northern Farmer and noticed that DS won the Interbreed at the Great Yorkshire. It looks tidy.

 You'll find sale prices on the DS club website https://www.dutchspottedsheep.co.uk/ in fact on the sales pages https://www.dutchspottedsheep.co.uk/stock-for-sale/ it has prices for ewes with lamb at £530. Prices will fall as interest picks up.

Edit: Show and sale in Carlisle this Friday 30 August (tomorrow!) https://e.issuu.com/embed.html?d=dutch_spotted_300819&u=ninaoxley
