This is raw wool [unwashed], skirted, and then I hand clean each ounce-batch again. Some people don't want to have any picking done, to retain the locks and grease, so I do as much cleaning without pulling apart a lot of lock.

The micron range is typically 21-25 range (similar to the upper-end of the Merino micron count) and has elasticity even in combed form, making it a unique fine/medium wool to spin.

About the breed and wool characteristics: The CVM [California Varigated Mutant] was developed in the 60's by closing Rambouillet and Romney sheep. The CVM is known and loved by spinners for not only the fine fibers-perfect for next to skin items] but also for it's variated colors from one fleece [Calla is an exception]. Many of the fleeces will create a tweed like yarn due to variation. This is also a critical conservation breed, and Apifera had previously helped the Katahdin breed when it was emerging out of a critical time, so we liked hoping this breed too. Unlike most breeds, the CVM wool becomes darker with age and the color can also vary along the staple length-making beautiful tweed like yarn.

I only use Priority shipping. This allows me to track, and also, due to our rural location my shipments are picked up.

Multiple Items: I set my shipping for each item, and then reimburse you immediately by Paypal if there is an overage. I do this because sometimes, my items have to be shipped separately, and it protects me to make sure i am covered for the shipping cost.

PRICES LISTED ARE FOR USA and INCLUDE USA PRIORITY S/H.

Int'l/Canada orders: If you are out of USA, email me WITH YOUR ADDRESS for extra s/h. Usually a 1# package is at least $25.
