This natural color Lincoln Longwool raw fleece was grown by our sweet, yet shy ewe, Boots. The pictures show the beautiful variations of color-from a silver that shines in the light to a lustrous pewter to a rich deep gray. It is has a tighter crimp (translated: smaller curls!) than the heritage Lincoln breeds, with a 4.5-5 inch staple and is 6 pounds. This fleece is lightly skirted and has little VM. It is unwashed so you can wash it as you please for your project. Boots's fleece is great for spinning, wet felting, needle felting, rugmaking, and other various crafts.
