This fleece is almost a true black with some bleaching on the tips and a little lighter grey fibers. It is a little weak in parts and has quite a bit of dirt and vegetable matter.  It will take some more work to process, but should yield some very nice, almost black, and unique 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.
