Here is a partial fleece from one of my fiber-lovely ewes "Cindy", a Corriedale. I washed a sample of this fleece (dip washed staples)and found that the cleaned fleece is fine and very white! It is an excellent length for flick carding, combing and could be hand carded too. Nice length also for beginner spinning. It could be spun up as woolen or semi, worsted or semi.

Cindy is an older ewe and her fleece softness is a medium. I would consider this for outer wear such as mittens, hat, slippers.

Breed: Corriedale

Amount available: 3 pounds (a partial fleece, well skirted)

Staple shape: very consistant crimp, rectangular from a closed fleece.

Staple length: average 4.5"

Lustre: a breed with little lustre, more of a chalk finish

Grease: Average lanolin

Crimp:very even from cut to tip, 7 crimps\/inch, the crimp is very much like a corriedale.

Soundness: yes

Cleaness: Although I don't cover the sheep, there is very little VM (vegetable matter) on the Corriedales. They have a closed rather than open staple that stops debris from settling down into it. We do live in a windy semi-arid area so there is a dust or dirt line about 1 inch down from the tip (in my test wash sample it washed out well). I suggest a plain COLD water soak (up to 48 hours), before washing, that removes the majority of the dirt as well as the suint. This saves water and soap because you will probably only require one washing.

Bonus: Included with fleece is a LAVENDER SACHET from homegrown lavender. If you have an allergy please let me know so I'll not send it!
