This beautiful white prime-cut or blanket fleece is from our boy Carlyle. He has very nice crimp, soft handle, and washes to a lovely white color, great for dying or just as it is.
His staple length is between 3.5" and 4". This fleece is skirted (unless you select the unskirted whole fleece) and I’ve taken out most of the VM - there may be a stray speck of hay but it is clean enough to spin. Carlyle does love to roll in the dirt, so his fleece will need washing, although I usually spin first and wash the yarn. Also, his tips tend to clump together, but they fluff right out when carded or flicked.
Carlyle has been with us longer than any of our alpacas, and still gives me wonderful fleece with great crimp, long staple, and lots of body and softness when spun. He is my go-to handspun yarn for knitting newborn hats, socks, and leggings. In fact, my Climbing Leaf Hat & Mitten Set pictured set is made from Carlyle.
If you'd like a sample of Carlyle's fleece, just send me a message and I'll send you a little. For that matter, I can send samples of anyone you see listed, and I usually have a number of fleeces I’ve not gotten a chance to list on here so just ask, if I’m sending a sample I might as well send several :)
My pricing gives a 10% discount going from an ounce to a full pound, a 15% discount going to a full skirted fleece, and a 30% discount by buying a full unskirted fleece.
Shipping is set for a large flat rate box to cover a larger order - if shipping is less for your order I will refund the difference.
I can not be happier with this luscious fleece! Thank you for going above and beyond, taking extra time and effort to prepare it for me. It is so soft and clean! A+++ customer service and fast shipping!
I generally ship USPS - being rural that is the most convenient - but can ship UPS when appropriate. I ship items as soon as possible - if already made then within 1-3 days usually, and if custom-made then within 2-3 weeks. If the actual shipping cost is more than $1 or so less than my listed shipping costs then I will refund the difference.
