Mrs Hughes's Fleece Grey Roo'd 2024

  • Sale


This fleece is from our ewe Mrs Hughes.  She is a grey ewe born in 2016.  I discounted her fleece because her tips have residual wool from her 2023 clip because she was sheared before she hit the rise last year.

Her fleece weight is 36.0  oz.  Heavily skirted.  Ewe was coated in the fall before we started giving them hay.

This is a roo'd fleece, which means it comes in two sections as I roo the sides during different sessions so the ewe isn't in the stand for so long.

Here is a link to a video I made about Rooing our Soft Shetland Sheep:

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