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 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:
