This is a really lovely fleece with some wonderful fiber.  Very clean with some larger vegetable matter and dirt.  Nice healthy strong fiber that will process nicely and make some wonderfully fine yarn or felt.  There are a few areas that need to be skirted out and are a bit dirtier and shorter.  For sure worth the investment.

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.
