This is a nice fleece.  It has super long and very fine fiber.  The fiber is strong, but there is a little weakness, just that it will have to be processed with a bit more care.  Some parts of this fleece are dirtier and need to be skirted out, but most of the fleece is very nice and clean.

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.
