Specialty wool fleeces for the craft industry is our main focus. At shearing we skirt our fleeces with care to eliminate the unwanted. We keep our flock small in number looking to utilize and combine only the best genetics to get the best color, staple length, uniformity, crimp and strength attainable. Because we are small we test our fleeces annually at the Montana Wool Lab for fineness and uniformity. We pride ourselves in strong fiber, "PING". Fiber strength is dictated by nutrition and we assure our flock gets the right nutrition to provide strong fibers on a consistent basis. Our flock is primarily fed on managed pastures and locally grown hay and we supplement only locally grown non-GMO feeds. All of our flock are coated all year long for cleanliness with the exception of a few days for mothers with newborn lambs.
We are very excited about our 2019 fleeces. It is particularly exciting to see our first 3rd generation lamb fleeces. Aretha, Guernsey, Joplin, Pepper and Boom. We head back to Black Sheep Gathering in July to show some of these. We are sold out of raw fleeces for 2019. Our fleeces have been mailed to customers in NH, MA, NY, PA, MD, MI, IN, OH, CO, TX, UT, CA, WA, QC & BC Canada and Norway. You can view the fleeces on the Gallery section below.
We were very honored and excited to have one of our fleeces (Cash) chosen as 2018 Grand Champion Colored Fleece at Black Sheep Gathering in Albany, OR.
