Sheep Fleeces

Home » Wool & Products » Sheep Fleeces

We sell clean, well-skirted, premium fleeces. They are guaranteed to be as described or your money back (including shipping!). The price listed is for the entire fleece. Shipping (via USPS Priority Mail unless requested otherwise) is extra and depends upon the destination. You can estimate shipping cost from our ZIP code (48473) to yours at the U.S. Postal Service website. Keep in mind that the box will add about 1.5 lbs to the shipping weight.

All fleeces are shorn and stored in a smoke-free environment.

If you would prefer to receive a ready-to-spin product, we can take the fleece directly to Zeilinger’s Wool Processing in not-too-distant Frankenmuth, MI, for a small fee ($10 to cover gas) thereby saving one shipping charge (if you plan to ship it out for processing). Their website is www.zwool.com .

Fleeces are marked as SOLD when we have received payment. Fleeces marked RESERVED have been spoken for, but payment has not yet been received. They may still be available if the interested party does not follow through. We accept Paypal, personal check and money orders. Email us for our mailing address.

Fleeces are either shorn blanketed (covered while growing during the hay-feeding season) or pastured (uncovered while the sheep is on pasture, therefore no hay contamination). All are well-skirted.



Romney Lamb Fleeces

Please note that because of their rapid growth, our lambs are not blanketed. However, these fleeces are extremely clean, first shearings from lambs born in the spring of the current year. Gender makes no difference at this point - ewe lamb and ram lamb fleeces are the same.

Bluefaced Leicester Fleeces

All unblanketed, but extremely clean (we find blanketing causes cotting or felting at the tips on BFLs).



Pitchfork 738 - 19

Pitchfork 738 - 19

Pitchfork 738 - 19 2.20 lbs, 4.00" staple length. Shorn February 2019. Unblanketed fleece.

Medium lock and purl, quite sense and very soft. Can be spun into very fine gauge yarn. This fleece has a small section with a  scourable yellow mark left by the ram's marking harness. 

As a rule, we do not cover our BFLs because the fleece is not dense enough to stand up to long-term blanketing without cotting. This lack of density also helps  shed most VM when the BFL shakes. However, we often toss a light-weight coat over BFL  fleeces that are getting close to shearing if we have to start feeding hay.

$37.00




82 Green

82 Green

82 Green 2.90 lbs, 5.50" staple length. Shorn May 2019. Unblanketed fleece.

Finer lock and purl on this long-stapled ram fleece, shorn in spring so there's no rammy odor. The the length protected the inner structure, but made it a little harder for the ram to shake out all the VM. That being said, it is still quite clean and well worth the small amount of of VM you will find in it. 

$64.00
