Fleeces & Wool

The 2023 list of fleeces available for reservation is now complete.   Please refer to the reservation information page for details on how to secure your choices.  (Date is wrong on that page but other reservation info is accurate). 

 

We're pleased to be an official fiber provider for The Livestock Conservancy's "Shave 'Em To Save 'Em" program! Let us know if you need a sticker.

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.

The great majority of our sheep are jacketed during hay feeding season to provide the discriminating handspinner with beautiful fiber free of vegetation. Even uncoated fleeces will contain very little VM. Fleeces may be purchased whole or divided in half. Half fleeces are always divided from head to tail. Shearing occurs during April as the weather and scheduling allows. 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.

Do you need scouring and washing agents for raw fleece and finished goods?  Be sure to hop over to our page of Unicorn products. They're great!  




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.

White
Fleece : Wee Little Guy 2023

4.00"


Bor.Leic./CVM/Rambou.

Some yellow lanolin stain may occur around the lower body.  UNcoated but very clean. $15.00 per pound. Full fleece approx. 6-7 lb.
