This isn't the greatest fleece.  It needed further skirting during shearing.  It does have nice feathered and fine fiber, but the fiber is a bit weak and for sure this fleece is very messy.  This fleece is fine and soft but will be quite a bit of extra work due to the dirtiness and weakness in the 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.
