STAPLE & CRIMP!



This listing is for 16 ounces (one POUND) of UNWASHED, raw East Friesian/Corriedale cross ewe's wool, just shorn several weeks ago. This fleece has an awesome amount of beautiful, bold crimp (averaging 6 per inch) to go along with a wonderful staple length that averages 4" - with a range of 3.5"-4.5" ( I pictured one of the shorter locks, in the spirit of complete disclosure)! This is a VERY EASY working fleece, from the washing, processing, right up through the spinning. The color washes up to a very light ivory, quite bright! This wool takes dye wonderfully, very vibrant colors that maintain a hint of luster, I've included a pic of some yarn I've spun from this fleece in order to show the luster (the yarn is NOT included with the listing). I would classify this as a medium fleece, as far as the softness goes, she is not Merino soft, I would make a hat from this wool, but not a bikini! The VM content is quite low on this particular fleece , very clean for an uncoated sheep, but you will find a some small hay fleck and and occasional small piece of hay stem, very light VM though. This fleece washes up like a dream - so forgiving - a very good choice for beginners or those looking for a no-nonsense, no hassle, dependable wool. This fleece is professionally shorn (few shortcuts), there is NO leg, britch, etc. very heavily skirted (NO BURRS - STICKS - MUD - OR TAGS). I stake my reputation on providing well described, quality fiber - you won't end up throwing half of this away. This is unwashed fiber that has not been processed in any way beyond normal, heavy skirting procedures. I am a veteran spinner who strives to supply quality fiber for fellow handspinners, that I would and do spin myself. All photos show the actual fiber you will receive, although only 1/2 pound is pictured in the basket - you will be receiving twice that much, which is A LOT of fiber with a fleece this lofty and light. Don't miss out on your chance to grab some of these fleeces - they're going fast!

I also provide an instruction sheet detailing my wool washing method, at no charge, for anyone who purchases one of my listings, just let me know in a message that you would like one and whether you prefer a PDF emailed to you or a print copy included with your fiber.

Just a note on the shipping with this listing - this will ship in two separate packages that weigh a bit over 8 ounces each (plus the weight of the packaging itself), by USPS First Class Mail - this helps cut down on postage costs for you! The $5.99 shipping price is for both 8 ounce packages.
