Fleeces & Wool

The 2018 fleece list is now posted.  Please see the reservation information page for details.


For any folks who have emailed me concerning fleece and not gotten a reply......... please check your spam filter/file for my email. I answer ALL emails - usually within a day - so if you don't get an answer it's because your question or my reply has gone into limbo.

Our non-Cotswold sheep are jacketed during hay feeding season to provide the discriminating handspinner with beautiful fiber free of vegetation. Even uncoated Cotswold fleeces will contain very little VM. Fleeces may be purchased whole or divided in half. Half fleeces are always divided from head to tail. The bred ewe flock is shorn in early March. Unbred animals are shorn later during April as the weather and time alllows. Following shearing, fleeces will be available on a first-come, first-served basis unless reserved. A charge of $20 per fleece will positively hold a particular fleece for you. This fee will be applied to the final purchase price of the fleece. Final price is determined by fleece weight. Expected fleece weights are listed with each fleece. If a flaw is discovered in a reserved fleece, I will email you as soon as it's discovered.

Free samples - small lock of the fleece - may be requested to confirm color.

Note: If you are outside of the USA, please check with your country's regulations regarding importing RAW fleece prior to purchasing from us. And, additional shipping charges will likely apply.

Wee Little Guy 2018

White
Fleece : Wee Little Guy 2018

6.00"


Bor.Leic./CVM/Rambou.

Wee Little Guy is a small ram who had a rough start in life but is now hale and hearty and very sweet. Too small to make a sensible breeding ram, he is instead a companion for the big rams and a fleece producer. On the heavier end of medium grade. I almost put him in the long category due to a wide crimp but the fleece handles more like a soft medium. Nice luster for the grade.  Coated.  $18.00 per pound. Full fleece approx. 7-8 lb.

This fleece has the luster and crimp of a long wool although it is softer and somewhat shorter like a medium grade, but I kept it in the Long Wool category. She's lost some length to age but it's still a pleasant length to spin. The crimp is soft and the wool has a nice, drape-y handle. Full fleece approx. 6-7 lb. Coated. $18.00 per lb.

Lovely big, blocky locks, stongly defined crimp and high luster. There does seem to be some yellowing to the fleece except along the middle of the back.
