This fleece is from our ewe Bianca.  She is a grey ewe born in 2021.  

Her fleece weight is 29.2 oz.  Heavily skirted.  Ewe was coated in the fall before we started giving them hay.

This is a sheared fleece.  Bianca gave us a great big fleece, she was so small as a lamb and at one point I didn't think she was going to be with us for much longer, but the dear thing rallied and I am smitten with her. She is very sweet and loves affection.

When I tested her for rooing, her fleece didn't budge, so I don't think there is much of a break in her fleece, so she is a great candidate for shearing.  

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:
