#00430 Merino Cross Ewe *Whole Fleece*
This fleece is a good fleece with some great qualities but also some problems. There are some weak points and double cut in the fiber as well as a few parts that need to be skirted out. The tips are just a little felty and weak. With that said this is very nice and fine fiber that is fairly clean and nice long staple length and crimp. This will be a fun fleece to work with and will make some really fabulous yarn or felt.
Fleece Quality: Good
Weight Approximately: 8.5 lbs
Staple Length: 5 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.
