This fleece isn't the greatest, it is pretty dirty and also just doesn't have the greatest handle or overall look.  With that said it is a nice lofty fiber that will make some nice felt or yarn but will have to be cleaned with care.  Some areas needed to be skirted out that are dirtier than others.

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.
