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

Her fleece weight is 22.8 oz.  Heavily skirted.  Ewe was coated in the fall before we started giving them hay.

This is a sheared fleece.

Here fleece is discounted because there are second cuts and neps at the base of the staple which will result in flicking or combing waste.  I decided to list this fleece despite the flaw, as it is so lovely and I thought someone might enjoy it.

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:
