This fleece has some outstanding fiber. High luster with a very slight crimp. Nice medium-fine fiber. A nice cream-colored with maybe a little more yellow shades than some. There are a few parts that for sure have larger amounts of vegetable matter and dirt and should have been skirted out at shearing. The rest of the fiber is very nice minus these areas. This will make some wonderful lofty yarn or felt.

Cactus Hill Farm is a Certified Organic farm. We do not certify our sheep or wool but our sheep are raised on organic feed and pasture. We like our animals to have space to roam, so all of our sheep are left out on pastures during the year and only penned up when babies are young. Cactus Hill farm is a multi-generational family farm and we strive to be good stewards of our land and of the lives we care for. All of our fleeces are skirted and the yuckiest parts removed.
