.The sheep were sheared on 3/18/22. They have thick crimpy fleece. The fleeces have been washed, and are posted on Etsy. The price is $25 per 8 ounce package.
The fleece is washed to preserve the curls, and some spinners spin it directly, or make it into roving for beautiful soft spinning yarn.
Pickup at the farm is preferred, as the price to mail it is about the same as the cost of the fleece.
I have a few smaller batches of beautiful curly, crimpy fleece. It was the curly heart of a fleece. It is very white, respectably clean, and soft. It is excellent for crafts and doll making.
I have joined the Maine Spinner's Club on Facebook, and I am trying to learn my spinning skills. Honestly, I am better at and enjoy working with and washing the fleece. The Windsor fair on June 4th and 5th, 2023 is a chance to sell whole fleeces, unwashed. The raw unwashed fleece usually goes for about $50 for the full fleece.
