This listing is for 4 oz. dark brown/chocolate combed top. This is a dream to spin, incredibly soft and drafts very smoothly. This top is from our CVM/Romeldale sheep named Crystal, raised on our farm in Michigan. Crystal is our sweetest and most loving ewe. All sheep on our farm are coated year round to ensure a beautiful and clean fleece.
CVM stands for California Variegated Mutant which is known for its next to the skin soft naturally colored fleece. CVM's began as a cross between a Rambouillet and Romney and developed into its own breed. They are a critically endangered sheep breed, meaning there are less than 2,000 of them in the world.
Beautiful prep on this. It didn't come in any sort of bag, so to be careful it's going in and out of the freezer a couple times before it goes near my other fiber. I appreciate the lack of packaging, actually - so that is not a negative. I'm very excited about spinning this, it will just be a few weeks before I can dig in.
Very quick and responsive shipping!!
