Congratulations on producing your own yarn.  If your black Wenseys' fleece is half as nice as my Quincy's, your yarn should be wonderful.

How much is it?

Have you got it listed on Ravelry, and posted about it in KnitBritish on there? 
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 cows (rearing their own calves for beef), pigs, sheep for meat and fleece, ducks and hens for eggs, veg and fruit growing

Thanks very much Sally, I'm delighted with it!  I'm charging 14 per ball.  I hadn't heard of Ravelry so thanks for that tip, I will post it up  ;D

May I please ask the name of the mill who spun it for you in scotland please. It looks lovely but unfortunately I have loads of home spun, and yet to be spun Gotland yarn and fleece to get through first. Good Luck

So many ideas, not enough hours

It was The Border Mill that spun it for me,  they can't do all wools but I was told that lustre-type fleeces suit their equipment very well, and I'm delighted with my yarn.
