This fleece is from our ewe Belva.  She is a white ewe born in 2020.  

Her fleece weight is 26.2 oz.  Heavily skirted.  Ewe was coated in the fall before we started giving them hay.

This is a sheared fleece.

I roo'd her in past years, but this year she wasn't bred, so I was concerned that she wouldn't have a good weak rise.  So I decided to shear her.  So there is a visible rise in her fleece and it is just so very close to the base of the staple that I am going to say that it is ok as is, but may have small bits of waste.  I would definitely comb or flick this fleece before doing anything else.  She is a short ewe, but broad, and for her size produces a nice sized fleece for us.

I included a copy of the micron data for this fleece in the photos.

Here is a link to a blog post I wrote that explains how I wash my raw fleeces.

Here is a video that demonstrates how I flick card a soft shetland fleece:


Here are links to some fiber preparation tools I offer from Majacraft that are well suited for super fine fleeces:
