#7229 CVM/Merino Ewe *Whole Fleece*
This is a beautiful fleece. It is so soft and has really consistent crimp and great handle. It has colors ranging from black to a steal grey with some unique sun bleaching on the tips. The only problem is that the tips are a bit weak and broken, but the rest of the fiber is healthy and strong. There is some larger vegetable matter and dirt. It will have to be processed with care with these flaws in mind. This fleece will make outstanding yarn or felt for close-to-skin wear.
Fleece Quality: Good
Weight Approximately: 7.3 lbs
Staple Length: 4 inches
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.
