Our pure-bred Romney ewe, Brooke, produced this beautiful gray fleece. She was coated all year and her fleece has been heavily skirted and picked. The resulting wool is virtually free of vegetable matter. Her wool hangs in soft locks and the staple length is 5 - 6 inches.

This auction is for 1/2 of Brooke’s fleece. Half of her fleece weighs 3 lbs. The fleece will be split down the back.

The photo of Brooke’s staple length contains two samples. The top sample has been washed while the lower sample is in its raw state. The photo of Brooke and her triplets (Forest, Fletcher, and Francine) was taken earlier this spring!

Romney fleeces are known for their ease of spinning and uniform crimp. Romney wool is also noted for its relative low lanolin content. This results in a higher yield of clean wool. We provide the fleece in its raw state which allows the wool to be spun “in the grease” if desired. Brooke’s fleece was shorn in January 2012.

About us ... Grace Valley Farms is located in the Clark’s Fork of the Yellowstone River valley in south central Montana. We are a small, family-operated farm. Our sheep enjoy the pastures watered by snowmelt from the nearby Beartooth Mountains. The pastures have been seeded with a wide variety of grass, legume, and forb species to provide optimal nutrition.

For more information about our farm, fleeces, and sheep, please visit our website -- www.gracevalleyfarms.blogspot.com.-- At the website you can also browse other fleeces we have as well as customer reviews.

Buyer pays shipping anywhere in the continental US; this covers shipping costs and materials. Local pick-up is available; we will deliver free to the Billings, Montana area. International shipping is available, provided it is okay to ship wool to your country. Please ask for a price quote. The photos we use are of the fleece listed in the auction; we do not use generic or typical photos.
