Opal’s fleece

$52.50

This 2016 raw fleece comes from our 5-year old ewe Opal.  It is a loose, airy fleece, white in color, moderately skirted, with light VM and a strong staple.  Opal’s fleece required 2o minutes processing time following the preliminary skirting – small burrs were removed on the hindquarters and the shoulders and some wool with micro-particles was removed in the mid-section along the backbone.  Her fleece was photographed on a 3 x 6 ft processing table.      Opal is a Delaine Merino-Corridale-Rambouillet cross.            (Click on pictures for increased clarity)

Weight: 3 lb, 12 oz
Staple length: 3.25 inches
Crimp: 18-20 per inch
