GENERAL INFO ABOUT MY RAW
FLEECES. The top photo is Linley's fleece. Click on the photo to make bigger and read the info printed on the photo.
The photos above are examples of my scoured fleece, a batt, some
roving, a happy fleece buyer, a raw fleece, and some wool.
You will be purchasing a fleece the Babydolls
grew from March 2019 to March 2020. I only have off-white RAW
for sale and only my best fleeces are available for sale. Most
of my raw fleeces are in the 70 to 90 ounce
range. When I ship a raw fleece, I've picked
the poop/pee sections off and any other nasty stuff and picked out the
large VM and any second
cuts. I lightly skirt the edges leaving the majority of the
fleece so the buyer can decide what they want to use and what they
don't want to use as many folks like to use the fleece they don't want
to process for their gardens or find other uses for it.
My sheep are not coated and are on pasture 365 days a year. They are
fed hay during breeding and during the winter. I do make an effort to
not have the majority of the
hay wind up on their backs while feeding; however, there will
be a bit of VM in their
fleeces, mainly in the neck area. I do the majority of my own processing of fleeces for my business and I
don't like to pick out VM anymore than the next person
does. Dirt comes out, VM not so easily. Wool
length is normally anywhere from 1.5 to 3.5 + inches.
