# 00483 Wensleydale Ewe *Whole Fleece*
Check out amazing fleece. Beautiful greys and dark greys with an attractive bleaching on the tips. Nice strong fiber with great luster and a unique crimp. There are some larger pieces of vegetable matter in the wool, but nothing too serious that won't clean out fairly easily. This is an outstanding fleece and will be a pleasure to work with, it in only on sale as we are getting ready for another shearing and need to get it moved!
A little about the Wensleydale longwool breed...their wool is known for its strength, length and luster. Wensleydale sheep are also often more resistant to certain sheep diseases, so they are great breed to have on the farm. If you haven't had the pleasure to work with this fiber before, it is great for spinning and felting. It will make a strong and very lustrous yarn.

Cactus Hill Farm is a Certified Organic farm. We do no 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 of and of the lives we care for. All of our fleeces are skirted and the most yucky parts removed.
