This fleece is nice and soft and fine, it has a really nice crimp.  This fleece does need more skirting that should have happened at shearing.  There are some double cuts and some parts that are dirtier and will be a bit more work to clean.  It is a bit of a disappointing fleece, but still does have some nice fiber.

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.
