This 2016 raw fleece comes from our 3-year old ewe Ingrid. It is a loose, airy fleece, white in color, heavily skirted, with some VM and a strong staple. Ingrid’s “whispy” fleece required 30 minutes processing time following the preliminary skirting – small burrs were removed from the hindquarters and wool with excessive micro-particles was removed from the mid-section along the backbone. Her fleece was photographed on a 3 x 6 ft processing table. Ingrid is a Delaine Merino-Corridale-Rambouillet cross.
