This 2016 raw wool fleece comes from our 3-year old ewe Nicole. It is a loose, airy fleece, white in color, minimally skirted, with little VM and a strong staple. Nicole’s large, ‘full-bodied’ fleece required very little processing time following the preliminary skirting – no burrs located and limited micro-particles. Her fleece was photographed on a 3 x 6 ft processing table. Nicole is a Delaine Merino-Corridale-Rambouillet cross.
