This fleece is from our ewe Dina.  She is a fawn katmoget ewe born in 2018.  

Her fleece weight is 14.1 oz.  Heavily skirted.  Ewe was coated in the fall before we started giving them hay.

This is a sheared fleece.

Her fleece is discounted because she didn't shear well, so there are random neps and 2nd cuts.  I decided to list this fleece despite the flaw, as it is so lovely and I thought someone might enjoy it.  I would wash this fleece and lock spin it into a fun bumbly yarn. 

Here is a video where I lock spin a washed fleece that is short and has very curly tips:


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:
