Description

Sheep shearing and fiber festival season is upon us, and my obsession is your gain. It is no secret to my friends and family that I love to process and spin raw sheep fleeces. Because I currently have more fleeces than I could ever hope to spin in my lifetime, I have decided to spread the love around!

The fiber for these batts is from a Columbia sheep fleece, which according to the Fleece and Fiber Sourcebook by Deborah Robsin and Carol Ekarius, was created by crossing a Lincoln Longwool ram with a Rambouillet ewe. The resulting breed produced a sheep with bright white wool, that is "lofty and just a touch crisp." Finer fleeces are next-to-the-skin soft and have a 3-6 inch staple length and a 23-31 micron count. The staple length on my fleece is 4 inches, and although I am not sure of the micron count, it is most definitely next-to-the-skin soft!

This listing is for one hand processed batts for a total weight of 4.6 oz, 126 g
Batt size: 17x38 in
100% hand processed Columbia wool

I have more of this fleece available, so send me a message if you would like me to card more up for you.

All of my natural hand-processed batts start out as raw unwashed fleece that I have either purchased directly from the farm or from a local to me fleece and fiber festival. I then sort through or "skirt" the fleece to remove any unwanted poopy bits, yucky wool, or hay (VM). The wool is carefully and gently washed in small batches and laid out to dry. Then to prepare the fleece for the drum carder, I hand pick each lock and tease them open, or I flick them open with a flicker brush. The fiber is sent through the carder three times to ensure a smooth and well blended batt. This is truly a labor of love!
