I haven’t had time to sort many fleeces yet. In fact, other than those I’ve sold I have only skirted the ram and wether fleeces. But I’m very happy with those that I’ve seen.
This is the fleece of a wether, Jerry. He is mostly black, not a good Jacob trait, but he will get to live his life being Faulkner’s companion. Faulkner is the BFL ram and I am not going to subject him to living with a group of rams with huge horns.
Faulkner and Jerry
This is what Faulkner’s fleece looked like “on the hoof”. This photo was taken shortly after I got him so it had grown a lot since then.
This is a lock after shearing.
Less than a minute in hot soapy water.
Silky, white locks!
