This fleece is not the greatest overall.  It needed a lot more skirting as there is quite a bit of variation in the cleanliness and quality of different parts of the fleece.  Some areas are very fine and have great fiber.  The fiber is not the strongest but is also not broken. This fleece will take a bit more care to process.

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.
