This fleece isn't the greatest.  The fiber is nice and lofty but it is fairly short, dirty, and has many weak spots.  Columbia sheep are more known for their meat, but Columbia wool can be a lot of fun for some loftier, bouncier 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.
