# 629 CVM/Merino Cross Ewe *Whole Fleece*
This fleece had some nice and very fine fiber, but it also has a few problems. It is very dirty in parts and definitely needed more skirting. It has quite a bit of vegetable matter as well. It will make some very nice yarn or felt, but it will take quite a bit of extra work for processing.
Fleece Quality: Good/Fair in parts
Weight Approximately: 11 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.
