This is a nice fleece with some very nice, fine, and white fiber.  Unfortunately, there are some areas that have quite a bit of larger vegetable matter and dirt.  Additionally, the fleece is a bit tippy with a clear weak spot towards the end of the lock.  This fleece will make some very soft yarn or felt, but will take a bit more care for processing.

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.
