A few people have been sending in photos of fleeces and this special edition showcases them. First is a pretty standard fleece taken at Scarborough by Mark Reeder.
Another from Mark Reeder is altogether more interesting… this poor quality record shot appears to show a fleece jacket/trouser combo. Until now this was only thought to be a myth and so a special expedition is to be organised to Sheffield to check the status of this rare breed.
Finally from the frozen wastes of Northumberland, Alan Tilmouth dusted off his lens to snap this fleece new to science.
Women in Northumberland are not known for wearing fleeces or any kind of coat, a dusting of body glitter normally keeping out the cold in the Bigg Market. It would appear that this fleece must be a vagrant and has been named in honour of it’s finder; Tilmouth’s Long-fleece Fleecimaximus tilmouthii.
