This fleece does have some very fine fiber, but overall it is a bit of a disappointing fleece, mostly because it is somewhat dirty with quite a bit of vegetable matter, there is also quite a bit of variation in the fleece with some parts being shorter and different quality.  It does have a nice fine and feathered lock

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.
