This long and lovely white fleece is from our well-loved ewe Jodi, born in spring 2010. She was sheared on February 11, 2017. And that is one year ago - this fleece needs a home and needs to get washed and processed. So, we are reducing the price by 50%.
She is a cross between Rambouillet and CVM/Romeldale. Her fleece is white, dense and has a staple length of 4.5”. Sadly, as you can see in the photo, about 1" of the tips pops off when tested for strength. The remainder of the fiber is strong. With this long staple length, you will be left with a good amount of length after you cut off the tips. Because this fleece requires extra attention, we are sellling this 6 pound fleece for $15/lb. - now reduced by 50%.
Jodi wore a jacket all year and her fleece is quite clean. We skirt our fleece aggressively which means that we pull off the leg wool, belly wool, head wool, and other parts a handspinner would not want to work with. If we wouldn't want to work with it, we know you wouldn't either!
CVM and Rambouillet both have high lanolin content, and Jodi's fleece is no exception. We recommend full quantity of wool scour and HOT water to remove grease. Convo with us if you require more information on washing this fine wool. After the tips are cut off, this will be a wonderful fleece to spin. It will also felt and dye beautifully.
This fleece is
* not washed
* weighs 6 lbs.
* sold as a whole fleece
* originally $15.00 per pound REDUCED PRICE - now marked down 50% to $7.50/lb
Both Rambouillet and CVM are fine wool, very soft with a pronounced crimp. These qualities make it elastic, springy and lofty. This fineness makes it appropriate for next-to-the-skin garments.
