This fleece has very fine, feathered fiber with a nice consistent crimp.  Unfortunately, it is also a little pilled in parts with some weakness in the fiber.  It also has some areas that are dirtier and needed further skirting.  With some care and extra time, this fleece will make some wonderful felt or yarn.

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.
