Shearing this spring yielded lovely fleeces. Then lambing commenced and I have been slow to share info about the fleeces – but here they are!
All of my sheep wear coats during the fall, winter and spring to help keep their wool as clean as possible. Each of the fleeces have been very carefully skirted to remove vegetable matter and soiled wool. In most cases there are two options available, 1: the main body of the fleece with virtually no vegetable matter and very clean wool – this is to be sold as one unit and 2: the margins which have a small amount of vegetable matter and are just a bit more soiled – this can be purchased in smaller amounts which I will weigh out and sell by the pound.
If you don’t see a fleece here that meets your needs please let me know. I do still have some wool available from earlier shearings.
