"Fid"- raw fleece (100% Shetland)

Only 1 left in stock


This is the 2023 fleece from one of my Shetland wethers, Glenfiddich (aka Fid). Fid is a Katmoget, with light colored body and darker belly. His fleece has both crimpy and wavy sections, and is lofty & squishy. It has a lower lanolin content (not very greasy). The colors range from dark brown to black, grey, and cream sections. Fid has one of the softer fleeces of my boys and will make some beautiful outerwear.

My sheep are not coated, so there will be some vegetable matter in this raw fleece. I have skirted out all the icky bits, and you will receive all of the clean wool from the neck, back, legs, and sides. Some sections may be slightly matted, but they were very easy to pull apart as I skirted! I have tumbled this fleece to remove as much VM as possible. There may be a few burrs in this fleece - I went over it very carefully to check (and will do so again before I send your order!). I'm happy to answer any questions you might have about his fleece, or to send you more pictures.

Weight: 4 pounds 1 ounce

Staple length: 3-5" (some longer, some shorter sections)

This fleece is SE2SE eligible - please write me a note so I can include your sticker.
