All his gorgeous wool fleece comes from Maine.
The C.V.M. fleece is ideal for soft yarn that will not be scratchy to the skin. At the 1984 National Handcrafters Showcase, the "Best of Show" was a ladies suit made from C.V.M. wool

C.V.M. color patterns vary widely, especially in the darkness of body wool. Unlike many sheep, the C.V.M. will not fade with age, but rather darkens from birth to their first year. With the wide variety of color patterns, including dark gray, black, brown, moorit, and spotted, not excluding the barred face badger pattern typical to the original C.V.M.'s, a breed description has been difficult.
Fleece should be bright, uniform and dense, of high yielding, long staple, fine wool. Sheep will average about 8 pounds of wool yearly with spinning counts from 60's to 62's quality. 12 month staple length averages 4 - 6 inches. Wool should have a well defined crimp from base to tip, be pliable to the touch and free from kemp or objectionable fibers.
High quality variegated fine spinning fleeces are in demand, as there are not many of them on the market. Spinners have a tendency to shy away from the fine count, but once they have handled and spun the wool, they enjoy the quality, softness and ease of spinning.


FAQs

They can be prepped or Raw it's up to you. The listing you have selected is for touch and see samples. They range from 0.1 to 0.25 +/- oz so you get to see what they look and feel like. I do this because I have very rare breeds many people have never touched, seen, or heard of. The larger samples (0.25oz) are the raw so you know how it will wash or scour. These samples are not usually large enough for most people to spin, some use for felting art though, because they only need small amounts.

If your shipping total seems a bit off just contact and ill fix it lickity-split. there have been some adjustment that may have gone awry witht he change overs from Etsy Studio.

ALL ITEMS ARE NOW CALCULATED SHIPPING

1) However this adds all your items together.
2)Your shipping will probably be listed as markedly higher as you will be charged the weight of shipping each item individually, the cost of packaging materials, and delivery to post office as they will not come to the studio for 1st class parcels.
3) You will have to wait approximately 1 week for a refund of overages of actual shipping costs.
4)There will be no insurance unless requested.
5) I will not be responsible for lost/misplaced/or delayed parcels. if you want a guaranteed delivery and insurance you will need to upgrade to Priority.

Keep in mind all canned goods are heavy glass and are well and safely packed increasing the bulk of your parcel. Yarn orders ship quite nicely with canned goods acting as their own packing media.... Just a helpful hint.
