This fleece has very nice and lofty fine fiber that is very white.  Unfortunately, there is one very dirty section with lots of vegetable matter all down the back.  This section will be more work to process and should be separated.  This fleece will make some wonderfully soft and 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.
