“Piper” – Spring/yearling ewe
3-4″ Average staple
Spring fleece, some vm (grass hay), overall pretty clean. Easy to pull apart but right now it’s hanging together loosely and would make a wonderful felted project.
About our wool:
This is a raw, skirted, unwashed fleece from one of our wonderful Gotland sheep. We keep a small flock of friendly Gotland sheep on our farm in northern Wisconsin. They are rotationally grazed on pasture during the grazing season, and as a result our fall fleeces are exceptionally clean. Spring fleeces are typically shorter and have more of a “fluffy” coat that has kept them warm through the winter. Handspinners will delight in our fall fleeces, and felters & crafters will find the spring fleeces make lovely material to work with.
