Raw Fleece: 

We've finished all the shearing for the year and have the fleeces in tidy bags. After stashing a couple for myself (really I shouldn't have!) here are a couple I have listed  for sale.  Please let me know if you have any questions:

This is from our lovely Shetland lass Cleo.  She is a yearling so this is her 2nd fleece. It is a very light brown/cream color of medium fineness, lots of luster, very crimpy around head and shoulders, more of a wavy crimpy towards the rear. very minimal vegi matter (WM) Fleece length is about 5-6 inches, wt 3# 5oz, price is $68 plus shipping.

This fleece is from our award winning Shetland ewe Julia, who always has a lovely fleece.  This is a mostly white fleece with a bit of grey along the spine.  Very soft and very little VM.  Fleece length is 3-4 inches.  Wt is 3# 10 oz for $79 plus shipping.

Lovely, soft, easy to spin, combed top in a variety of natural Shetland colors.    Includes black, dark brown, moorit (brown), fawn (a grey brown), mioget (yellow brown), light gray and white.  Make your own fair isle sweater, hat or mittens!  $2.90 per oz plus shipping (let me know about how much you want and your zip code and I will give you a price).




Shetland Roving:

Shetland roving in two colors, a rosy moorit (red brown) and a mioget (creamy light brown).  Easy to spin, good for felting.  $2.50 per ounce plus shipping (let me know about how much you want and your zip code and I'll give you a price).
