This fleece is from our 10 year old ewe Genoa. She is a grey katmoget ewe, usually I wouldn't offer a 10 year old ewe's fleece to my handspinners, but this fleece is so dreamy I had to make it available. So proud of our Genoa and her performance over the years, both as a mom and as a fleece producer. I have attached a screenshot of the AFD report we received from Texas A&M on this ewe's wool sample which we submitted in March:
Her fleece weight is 25.2 oz. Heavily skirted. Ewe was coated in the fall before we started giving them hay.
This is a rooed fleece.
Here is a video that demonstrates how I flick card a soft shetland fleece:
