Description

A definite crimp and good 'ping' make this fleece fantastic to work. It cards, combs and spins easily and takes dye well. As a cross breed she is harder to describe but it is medium fine with the best of the fleece being 'skin soft'. Most of the second cuts will have been removed and I hope the photos do this lovely fleece justice. I have shown where she has managed to collect some hay on her neck area - very soft wool, too good to bin, and the VM will drop out when processed.

Notes
The essential oil based fly repellent I use does seem to attract the dirt and so some areas look grubby but it washes out easily and smells better than your average fleece!
