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.
Wofford (PFR 786) 6.50 lbs, 4.00" staple length. Shorn August 2014. Unblanketed fleece.
A beautifully constructed first shearing lamb fleece, distinct in lock and crimp with a wonderful handle and lots of luster. Tons of breed character.
White Romney Fleeces
Coquille 8.50 lbs, 6.00" staple length. Shorn March 2014. Unblanketed fleece.
This is another gorgeous fleece going for a very reasonable price due to being unblanketed. There is a modest amount of VM, more than we prefer to sell as a fleece to be processed by hand. The locks are beautiful, distinct and lustrous and the handle is very soft. The resulting roving will be outstanding.
Mort 9.75 lbs, 5.00" staple length. Shorn July 2014. Unblanketed fleece.
Excellent lock and crimp with distinct luster. Wonderful buttery handle.
Natural Colored Romney Fleeces
Aretha 10.50 lbs, 4.75" staple length. Shorn July 2014. Blanketed fleece.
Medium to light silver, lots of luster and lock definition, distinct crimp. Great handle.
Katie Jo 12.00 lbs, 4.00" staple length. Shorn July 2014. Blanketed fleece.
Huge, heavy shearing fleece with great color and breed character. Distinct crimp and a soft handle. Sun-tipped where the coat touched the wool. We will split this fleece down to 6 lbs.
Bluefaced Leicester Fleeces
All unblanketed, but extremely clean (we find blanketing causes cotting or felting at the tips on BFLs).
Lydia 4.00 lbs, 5.00" staple length. Shorn August 2014. Unblanketed fleece.
If you are looking for perfect BFL locks for crafting, here is your fleece. Distinct, lustrous purled locks with very little cross-fibering. An eye-popping fleece.
Lakisha 2.50 lbs, 4.50" staple length. Shorn August 2014. Unblanketed fleece.
Nice palette of color in this fleece - jet black, silver and some brown at the tips. Good lock and purl formation on a very soft fleece. Great locks for crafting.
Teeswater/Teeswater Cross Fleeces
Tim - Teeswater 4.00 lbs, 5.00" staple length. Shorn May 2014. Unblanketed fleece.
Wow. This photo does not lie. This is a stunning high percentage Teeswater fleece - incredible luster, lock formation and eye appeal. Not blanketed but very clean.
Edna - Teeswater / BFL cross 3.25 lbs, 5.00" staple length. Shorn May 2014. Blanketed fleece.
This is the fleece from a 50/50 cross BFL/Teeswater. It has the luster, long staple and fleece weight of the Teeswater combined with the fineness and handle more akin to the BFL. Unique and beautiful!
PFR 807 3.50 lbs, 4.00" staple length. Shorn August 2014. Unblanketed fleece.
This high percentage Teeswater-cross lamb was cold-rinsed before shearing, so this fleece has very little grease weight. It has wonderful lock structure with a fine, silky handle. Perfect for spinning or crafting. Very clean.
PFR 806 3.10 lbs, 4.00" staple length. Shorn August 2014. Blanketed fleece.
This first shearing lamb fleece was cold-rinsed prior to shearing, so the grease weight is very low. Beautiful and distinct silky locks with wonderful luster and a butter handle.
