Fleece For Sale:  

Shearing for 2019 is now complete!  I have a basement of bags and am going through a 2nd skirting, pricing and posting them one by one.  Really I just love to touch wool!

Below I give a brief description and try to rank degree of vegi matter (VM) on a scale of 0-3, 0 meaning very, very little, 3 means not to put it on my sale list.  VM at our farm consists of bits of seedless orchard grass hay or straw.  This year the fleeces seem exceptionally clean and well skirted.  Also of note is that these gals were not bred this year, meaning they don't have the stress of lambing or lambs jumping on their wool.  This makes for a better fleece, although we miss the bouncing babes.

You can tell the length of the lock by the picture; each of those squares is 2 inches.
Anyway I try to be honest about it so you know what to expect.  Let me know if you have any questions.  Price does not include shipping, you can give me a zip and I'll quote you shipping costs.  Generally it's about $20 unless it is a smaller fleece and I can get it into a medium size USPS box, then it's a bit less.

Raw Fleeces:


This is her 2nd fleece and she is still a hairball!  She has a more primitive double coat type Shetland fleece with plenty of length but still soft to handle.  Locks are 5-6", color is a medium/light brown.  
VM 0


Rachel is a middle aged ewe but still has a lovely fleece, silky soft and black (or is is very dark brown?).  Locks are 3-4".
